Welcome to the very first edition of the Sustainable Dish Podcast. I had such a great time working on the Modern Farm Girls Podcast, but my co-host Liz Wolfe has decided to spend more time with her baby (Liz and I are still great friends!) and I wanted to interview a broader audience: not only women in farming and not only farmers, but all sorts of experts from food and nutrition to farming and also related lifestyles like sleep and movement experts. Because of this, I have decided to focus my energy on this new show, Sustainable Dish. I have a few more episodes left of Real Food Radio, but soon I’ll be only focusing on this one show so that I can attempt to have a slightly more sustainable life myself!
On the first episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, we talk with Ellery Kimball of Blue Heron Farm.
