Down & Dirty with a CVICU Nurse: Talk with Blake
Recently, a review said this show wasn’t edgy enough. This episode should redeem us a little. XD In this episode, Adrianne welcomes CVICU nurse Blake (no, not Blake Lynch), who is both knowledgeable and totally NSFW in all the best ways. In addition to some off-color jokes that render Adrianne speechless, they talk about tons of stuff both in and out of the ICU. This conversation goes from heavy to light many times, so be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions. They talk about stuff like: -What kind of person makes a good CV nurse -How it feels when you know your patient won’t survive -How COVID has affected his hospital and the patient outcomes he’s seeing -Passing out as a student/new grad -Why there’s no zinc left in the Pyxis ..and tons more. Blake is working on getting into CRNA school and Adrianne recommended a great blog post about how to be a competitive CRNA school candidate by Jenny Finnell.

DIRT Workshop Roundup: Strip Tillage, Cover Crops, Relay Crops, and Grazing
This is our final episode of season three. What a great season it has been! To close out season three, we wanted to bring you a highlight reel from the recent DIRT workshop. However, with two full days of material and dozens of experts weighing in on a variety of topics - there was no way to condense things down to a 30 minute Soil Sense episode. So instead, I chose to pull clips from four different individuals, each of which weighed in on a different panel during the DIRT Workshop. Today’s guests were chosen not only for great information and stories, but also because they have not yet been featured on this podcast.You’ll hear from Steven Schuster, a farmer in Minto, North Dakota, talking about strip tillage, then will hear from Stefan Gailans, who is with the Practical Farmers of Iowa talking about cover crops, then Russ Gesch from USDA ARS based out of Morris, MN who shared about relay cropping, and will finish today’s episode with rancher Jerry Doan from McKenzie, ND who describes some of this practices grazing cover crops. “It’s not necessarily about getting the highest yield. It’s about having the most profit from the yield that you are getting, and controlling risk.” - Steven Schuster “A living cover crop is still standing up. Those row units can move through that a little better, so that they don’t plug. They can cut through the cover crop in the soil, get good depth control, and cover up that furrow again.” - Stefan Gailans (on planting soybeans green) “We call these winter oilseed ‘cash cover crops’, because we’re wanting to harvest them to tap into new markets, but also getting those environmental benefits of using it as a cover crop.” - Russ Gesch, Ph.D. (on relay cropping camelina/soybean) “When I was growing up, it was wheat and summer fallow, and half of that soil is in South Dakota because that’s where it blew to back in those days. And I didn’t know if we could bring those soils back...and we’ve been really impressed by how we ARE bringing those back.” - Jerry Doan This Week on Soil Sense: * Steven Schuster, farmer from Minto, ND talks about strip tillage * Stefan Gailans, research and field crops director for the Practical Farmers of Iowa talks about cover crops * Russ Gesch, Ph.D., research plant physiologist with USDA ARS in Morris, MN on relay cropping camelina * Jerry Doan, rancher from McKenzie, ND on grazing cover crops Connect with Soil Sense: * _Soil Sense Initiative _ Soil Sense Podcast is hosted by _Tim Hammerich_ of the _Future of Agriculture Podcast_.

OFI 969: The Answer To Urban Sprawl And The Question "How Can I Start A Farm?"
SHOW NOTES There are two fundamental issues that have always plagued me when it comes to farming. First, what do we do about urban sprawl and disappearing farm ground? Second, how can a person expect to start a successful farm and be a full-time farmer with land, input, and equipment costs being so high? So, when I was contacted by The Conservation Fund asking to be on the show and talk about their answers to these questions, I jumped at the chance. The folks at The Conservation Fund are pro-agriculture, and they are particularly fond of locally produced farm goods that follow their model of sustainability. They also abhor disappearing farm ground. So, they are working to increase locally produced goods while slowing urban sprawl. Right now they are doing this in the 30 counties, metro area of Atlanta, Georgia as a pilot project. But the prospects are very good for expansion. In this episode, I speak with Stacy Funderburke, who is heading up the "Working Farms Fund" on behalf of The Conservation Fund in the Atlanta metro area. This program aims to pay farmers the actual market cost for their farms. Once purchased, they place the farms into an agricultural easement so that they will be farmed in perpetuity. And this is when the fun really starts. Once these two things have taken place they match up the particular farm with an experienced farmer, who has been leasing ground or working as an employee and is looking to start their own enterprise. Because the land has been placed in an agricultural easement the price is not driven up by demand from developers. This gives the new farmer a reasonable shot at purchasing the land. To begin the new farmer enters into a lease on the farm ground with an option to buy. The Conservation Fund helps the new farmer with obtaining resources, sharing equipment, and developing markets. In exchange, the City Of Atlanta and its surrounding metro area have another local producer who can bring locally grown food to market in that area. It is a win/win/win situation. You don't need to be from Georgia to participate in this and be selected as one of the new farmers. We will tell you all about this in today's episode.

Examining the science of farming. In This Podcast: Imagine if farmers could predict annual weather patterns to determine water use, soil moisture, and avoid crop failures, yet this seems far from possible. However, Josh Krenz works with a company that creates devices to collect farming data and essentially facilitates farmers’ ability to “predict the future”. Listen in to learn about what types of data is collected, how EarthScout sensors maximize efficiency for farmers, and the differences in results of crops that used farming sensors.

The Abundant Edge is becoming Regenerative Skills. Thank you for all your support!
Welcome friends and family to the very last episode of the Abundant Edge podcast. I know I’ve built this up to feel a little final, but the truth is that this is just the beginning. I personally feel like I've hit the limit of what I can present and the value I can bring to the podcasting space through the hour long interview format, and while I’m so grateful for all of the life changing insights and even connections that I’ve gained by speaking to my heroes and teachers in the regenerative fields, I think it’s time for a change.  The other side of this is that there are so many both new and established shows that are rocking the interview format. I’ve especially loved and highly recommend Sustainable World Radio with Jill Cloutier, The Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann, Green Dreamer with Kamea Chayne, and Regenerative Agriculture with John Kempf. While there are tons more great shows with regenerative messages out there, those have been the ones I’ve gone back to and gotten ideas and inspiration from time and again, not only for the quality conversations with great guests that they feature, but for the excellent sound and production quality, which really makes a difference when you listen to as many podcasts as I do. So by changing formats in the next season, I know the bases for longer form interviews about regenerative topics are still well covered.  On the other hand, I’ve been motivated lately to bring more storytelling and condensed actionable information to those of you who don’t have as much time to commit to 30 minutes or more of an interview and are looking for the cliff notes and tangible steps that you can take right now, today, to strive for a regenerative future.  I also keep hearing from those of you listening that you want to participate and get involved, and for that reason I’ll be creating resources beyond just the podcast so those of you who learn better with visual aids, to-do lists, and note packets can revisit the information in the show without having to go back and listen to the whole show again. But I’ll tell you more about those bonus materials in a bit Resources: https://sustainableworldradio.com/ https://www.thepermaculturepodcast.com/ http://regenerativeagriculturepodcast.com/ https://greendreamer.com/ https://soundcloud.com/hugrecords?ref=clipboard&p=a&c=1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnc95-EPUwk
