4: It's Alive! Talking Soil + Mushrooms with Paul Maschka, Educator + Regenerative Farmer

 

Paul Maschka joins host Katie Stokes for a discussion of how the soil is alive, and why that's a wonderful thing. From growing food on his farm in Chula Vista and teaching agriculture at Wild Willow Farm and Education Center, Paul describes how, contrary to its reputation as a bad thing, "dirt" is an amazing living network of life connecting the atmosphere, water, and surprisingly diverse biological activity. Or it's supposed to be! Paul also whets our appetite about the magical world of mushrooms, which play an essential role in the soil food web as well as tasting amazing. Katie shares a way to make a snack from a user-friendly garden plant that packs a big nutritional punch, is fun to make, and stores easily for some healthy, handy munchies.

Brendan Synnott has been an entrepreneur for quite some time. After owning multiple food-industry brands, Brendan felt the need to dig into an industry that even eco-conscious people don't tend to think too much about; clothing.
