Soils, Compost and Climate Change #2: From COP21 To Now

EPISODE SUMMARY In part two of our climate talks episode, we're delving deeper into the main discussion points, the challenges, and the dangers we're facing right now in making agriculture and soil a key player in climate change strategies. By the end, we should have a decent overview of the situation and will be all set for COP22. We'll also be sharing insights from the International Compost Roundtable - a side event that took place during COP21, with speakers Enzo Favoino of Zero Waste Europe, climate change advisor Calla Rose Ostrander, and Teresa Anderson of Action Aid. We discuss: the latest developments from the SBSTA, the issues withlinking soil carbon sequestrationwith cutting emissions, the dangers of greenwashing, and how to support compost markets in a fair, sustainable way.

[Retrospective] Vineyards Special #1: The Wonders of Cover Crops

EPISODE SUMMARY While we will continue to make new episodes, there are times when we feel the urge to highlight a past episode - because the topic it covers becomes news and the show shares some great insights, or because it is content that our newer listeners might have missed out on. Since last year was the International Year of Soils, we will be republishing a few of our best episodes about soil and soil health to get a fresh perspective in light of all the progress that has been made on the issue. Toround-off the series, we're ending with a in-depth look at a popular and very effective sustainable agricultural technique: cover cropping. In episode 16 of our show, we had with usBob Cannard and Bob Shaffer - both experienced sustainable farmers and horticulturalists. They shared their techniques with us, explained just how cover cropping works and how beneficial it can be, and gave us their expert advice. We learned a lot about cover crops in making this episode, and if you're won...
