9/23/13 – Sustainable Agriculture: Idaho and Abroad

On this episode of Elemental Idaho I talked with Pete Pearson from the Idaho Center for Sustainable Agriculture, an organization formed to promote local and sustainable food communities through research, collaboration with farmers and the expansion of local food distribution. My other guest was Ben Simko of Semilla Nueva, a Guatemala organization with Idaho roots focused on sustainable agriculture technologies and farmer to farmer education in Guatamala. What does sustainable agriculture mean to the people of a third world, impoverished country, versus its importance here at home? What are the challenges, obstacles to and necessity for each?
