Podcast Episode 7 – Johl Whiteduck Ringuette of Nish Dish

On today’s episode I sit down with Johl Whiteduck Ringuette of Nish Dish Marketeria and Catering in Toronto, Ontario. We are sipping on fresh water from the café at CSI Annex and we managed to book one of their meeting rooms very last minute. We talk about Johl’s life journey and the creation of Nish Dish, we talk about food sovereignty, and we talk about land stewardship. I had the privilege of hearing Johl speak at Impact Fest 2018 and am so excited to be able to share this compelling story with you. Stay tuned right till the end for a preview of next weeks episode on Urban Agriculture with the plant passionate Brooke Taylor!

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.
