City Farmer

The Wiggly Podcast

By Heather 11 years ago


This week, it’s Part 2 of Heather’s Nuffield Scholarship trip to the USA and then she heads off to Canada with Farmer Phil and Monty. Her first stop is at the biodynamic vineyard owned and run by 24 members of the Benziger family on the slopes of the Sonoma Mountain. The next scheduled stop is at City Farmer in Vancouver where they teach urban agriculture and environmentalism and run a regional compost hotline that serves over 2 million people. Whilst Heather is talking beetles with the staff they are entertained by The Regal Trio playing a track from The Beatles. The last stop is at Geek Farm Life where they practice sustainable farming and add value to their own lives.
