Situated just a short drive from the center of Putney, VT, Vermont’s oldest certified organic Farm. High Meadows has been providing the community and greater New England with premium organic vegetables and potted plant plants since 1979. High altitude, cool evenings, and mineral rich soils are key to High Meadows’ sweet nutrient rich vegetables. This land has been used for farming as far back as the 1700s when it was once part of the historic Ranney family farm, the first settlers in this town. Prior to its purchase in 1979, the farm was primarily run as a dairy farm. Four and a half miles from the center of Putney, VT, High Meadows farm is located just adjacent to the site where NOFA VT was founded.

Create Your Best 2021 - A Process for Reflecting on 2020 to Plan 2021 (FSFS232)
We’ve just signed off from 2020 and we’re starting a new year in 2021. Looking back at the past year, how does it make you feel? Are you sighing with relief, just glad that it’s finally over? Or maybe you’re looking at how even though 2020 wasn’t that great of a year, there were still things to be happy and thankful about? Javan's workshop: https://allpointsdesign.ca/product/envision-2021-workshop/ In this episode of Farm Small, Farm Smart, we have Javan Bernakevitch, and we’re talking about year-end reviews: how you should do it, why you should do it, and how it can hopefully help set you up for a better 2021 by doing an honest self-reflection and setting intention. It won’t just be looking at facts and numbers, it’s also taking stock of your emotions, what brought you joy, what brought you suffering, and planning it out in the year ahead to get the same, or even better, results. It's simply changing your approach.

Return of the Regional Beekeepers - Winter Perspectives (S3, E34)
In this episode of Beekeeping Today Podcast, we reconnect with our beekeeping friends from Season 2, Episode 29. They come from across the country including Central North Carolina, North East Ohio, the western slope of the Rocky Mountains and the West Coast of Washington. We talk with them about last season, this winter and what they expect for next season. We start out in North Carolina with Mark Smith, who has had bees since 2014 and is running 20 – 30 treatment free colonies. His season last year had some real surprises and he was playing catch up most of the summer. He has some good plans for this spring though that should help out this season. Next, on to North East Ohio, with Tracy Alarcon, an Inspector in Portage County. The weather played tricks with his honey flow last summer and he made a boatload of honey he wasn’t quite prepared for. Surprise! So, he’s going to be prepared this year. Next, on to the western slope of Colorado with Ed Cobey, the Bottom Board author in Bee Culture magazine every month. Ed runs about 70 colonies and keeps them at low, medium and high altitudes, so has a very mixed season. He had excellent overwintering last year, but some drought got in the way of the honey crop. Finally, meet Paul Longwell, a 12-year beekeeper in Olympia Washington. Paul uses topbar, Langstroth and AZ Slovenian beehouse hives, and volunteers to treat neighboring hives to reduce mite pressure. Lots of rain means lots of honey, some years, and you have to be ready for that, and do things at the right time, and he’s getting good at that. Four different regions. Four different beekeepers. Four different approaches to managing their bees through the seasons. Listen today and see how you compare and perhaps what you might do differently this year!

The Wondrous World of Living Color
Step into the vibrant and beautiful world of living color with natural dyer, designer, and artist Sasha Duerr. Sasha takes us on a journey from Soil to Studio. We learn how creating and working with dyes made from plants, seaweed, and other natural materials can increase our ecological and botanical knowledge, foster collaboration, and have a beneficial impact on ecosystems. Natural dyeing offers us multiple opportunities to participate in solutions. Food scraps and green waste can transform old clothes into “new”. Instead of being buried at landfills and emitting VOC’s, organic materials like onion skins, pomegranate rinds, and citrus peels can be re-purposed into natural dyes that revitalize our wardrobes and lessen our carbon footprint. Some dyes can even be poured into the garden when finished and used as a fertilizer. Unwanted weeds in your yard or invasive plants in your neighborhood can also be turned into color. One of my favorite dyes is Sour Grass. I look forward to seeing this ubiquitous plant every winter. I collect loads of it and dye old clothes a neon yellow that really glows. (Note: Be sure to identify plants before using them as dyes- just in case they are toxic.) Sasha talks about a few of her favorite dyes including Loquat, Eucalyptus leaves, and Redwood Cones, all very appropriate plants for beginning dyers. We also learn about some of the palettes from her new book Natural Color. I especially loved the Pollinator and Perfume Palettes. They will make you swoon! What color story would you like your clothes to tell? Sasha Duerr is an artist and designer who works with plant-based palettes, natural dyes, and place-based recipes. She is an Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts with a joint appointment in textiles and fine arts where she designs curriculum and teaches courses in the intersection of natural color, slow food, slow fashion, and social practice. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums across the United States and abroad. In 2007, Sasha founded the Permacouture Institute to encourage the exploration of regenerative design practices for fashion and textiles. Her extensive work with plant-based palettes and ecological principles through local land-based sources and community has been featured in many publications She is the author of The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes, Natural Color, and Natural Palettes.Discover more about Sasha and her work at SashaDuerr.com.

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
