On this week’s podcast, we embark on our journey of discovery into regenerative agriculture – what it is, what makes it different from conventional agriculture, and why it’s important.

The first stop on the journey is a conversation with regenerative farmer, Mike Lewis. We’ll hear about his work as a sustainable ag specialist at the National Center for Appropriate Technology, as well as his holistic farming operation in southeastern Kentucky. He is also the board chair for the Hemp Industries Association and is a student of Wendell Berry.

We will also hear from Michael Monteiro, co-founder of Mpactful Ventures, an investment and incubator company focused on supporting start-ups and other initiatives to mitigate the climate crisis. Mpactful Ventures in also one of our new podcast sponsors for 2022.

And this week we introduce a new segment sponsored by IND HEMP called “Something to Think About” in which we’ll briefly explore a topic of environmental concern.
