Alia Johanna on Roots to Harvest

Podcast Episode 10: Alia Johanna on Roots to Harvest

On today’s episode I sit down with Alia Johanna of Roots to Harvest in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  We talk about using food as a tool to empower and educate, food security in the North, and a program called Forest Meets Farm.  She has been out chopping wood and sorting root veg with a group from the Academic Year Program.  We are in the food hub after hours and have set the alarm off once or twice.  Keep your shovel in  the ground and stay tuned for more farm talk!

Welcome

Our goal with Farm Talk Radio is to tell a story across ​Canada, weaving a mosaic of landscapes that focus on the people, places, and things that inspire change — To give airtime to the hardworking men and women who are feeding the bodies, hearts, and minds of our great country. Farming can at times be a lonely and isolating profession. It is one filled with numerous hardships. The long hours, physically demanding work, and constant struggle to work in harmony with Mother Nature take their toll. Furthermore, the ever-changing extremes of climate change will only add to these pressures. Not to mention, the financial risk of being an entrepreneur and running a business to feed and support yourself and your family. Yet this is a field of work that continues to attract some of the most incredible and inspiring change makers that I have been fortunate enough to meet. Spend a weekend at your local farmers market and you’ll know what I am talking about. Because of this, it will be an honour to sit down and listen to them and help them tell their story. Farm Talk Radio explores the challenges these agents of change are going through and the gifts that this journey has brought them. And we’d like to share all of this with you.
