We look forward to hearing from you!
INTO THE LAND
Lovesoil is happy to present the podcast"Into the Land".
The creators of the podcast are food, soil and Earth enthusiasts and they share their passion in dialogue with farmers and specialists.
In the first episode we visit a 'state-of-the-art' regenerative farm collective 'Farendloese Moster' in Denmark where we meet co-owner Sandra Willumsen who learned how to run a sustainable production with the help of Youtube videos! Because within the established educational system there are no courses that can
teach young people the many skills needed on a farm like this.
They also touch upon the future of farming in Denmark where we produce large amounts of food for pigs which then are exported overseas. As Sandra says in the podcast:
“Export the knowledge, not the meat”!
The podcast "Into the land" tells stories about the land, its cultivators and cultivation practices. It reflects upon the European agriculture system now and in the future, through the voices of young farmers, activists and lovers of the land. By listening to their stories we want to share the infinite possibilities of sustainable
land cultivation and share their view of our food production system.
HARDCORE TEACHING ABOUT BIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF REGENERATIVE FARMING
We talk too little about how much nutrition there is in the crops we eat. And why the level of nutritional value is declining. And since we humans find it hard to believe anything and take it seriously before we have data and scientific proof, it is super exciting to follow American Dan Kittredge these years. He is a farmer and is the leader of an organic association in New England and founder of the Bionutrient Food Association, which works to improve the quality of
food. He does not spray with pesticides, he does not plow and he does not weed either! How is that possible?
Dan Kittredge recently visited Denmark where Lovesoil editor Helle Solvang recorded this.
His three-hour (hardcore) presentation is only roughly edited and is followed by reflections and reactions from some of the participants, as well as a short interview in which he is asked how it is possible, that he hardly spends any time weeding his vegetables.
The seminar was organized by the Danish Association of Regenerative Agriculture. Introduction by student Kirstine Frida Rysbjerg.
