This week I am sharing a podcast I was interviewed on so I am in the guest seat! Check out Matty's podcast How To Not Get Sick And Die Podcast
Hey there, soil enthusiasts! Welcome back to Secrets of the Soil. Today, sit back and join host Matty Lansdown and the engaging 'Regen Ray' Milidoni as they dish out the lowdown on staying healthy and hearty through savvy food choices and sustainable farming.
They dive deep into the realms of regenerative farming, biodynamics, and organics, unlocking the secret to nutrient-rich produce—healthy soil. The convo winds through the maze of food labels, consumer savviness, and the need for a revamp in the labelling game to empower informed choices.
From growing your own veggies to linking up with local farmers, Ray and Matty serve up practical ways to connect with our food sources. They also shake up the status quo by tackling food waste and championing a return to our natural food immunity.
Here's a breakdown of the insightful discussion:
🌾 Importance of Connecting with Farmers:
- Ask farmers about their farming methods, including whether it's organic, biodynamic, or regenerative, and how long they've been farming.
- Don't dismiss young farmers; they may offer innovative and sustainable practices.
- Engage with community-supported agriculture (CSA) models and local farmers markets to support sustainable agriculture.
🌿 Reclaiming Our Connection to Food:
- Embrace natural food sources to boost immunity and resilience.
- Consider growing food in your own space and engaging with local farmers to learn about their methods.
- Encourage schools to educate younger generations about food cultivation to nurture a healthy connection to food.
🌎 Addressing Food Waste and Sustainability:
- Explore initiatives like using bikashi bins, worm farms, and repurposing food to reduce food waste.
- Challenge the misleading labelling of supermarket products and be a conscious consumer.
- Support regenerative farmers and platforms like Open Food Networks to demand better quality food and minimize food waste.
So, get ready to dig into the juicy details of sustainable farming and its impact on our well-being in this enlightening episode of Secrets of the Soil. Let's get our hands dirty!
