Podcast Episode 8 – Brooke Taylor on urban agricultural and living more sustainably

On today’s episode I sit down with Brooke Taylor in Toronto, Ontario. We are upstairs, in the private party room at The Peasant Table restaurant in Leslieville. We are sipping on Sidelaunch Wheat beers and we are ready to talk urban agriculture and sustainable living. We discuss milk crate gardening, property beautification, and living off grid in Panama! Stay tuned right to the end for some well wishes from the Farm Talk team. Finally, we preview next weeks episode with Yukon Damov and his thesis on Universal Basic Income. Thank you for listening, keep your shovel in the ground and stay tuned for more farm talk!

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.
