Farmacology: Soil, Health and Medicine
Daphne Miller, MD, had long suspected that human wellbeing and how our food is produced are intimately linked. She visited and studied seven innovative family farms around the country on a quest to discover the hidden connections between how we grow our food and our health, and she published her findings in Farmacology: Total Health from the Ground Up (also the basis for the award-winning documentary In Search of Balance). Joining Daphne to discuss how farming techniques from seed choice to soil management have a direct impact on our health will be: Timothy J. LaSalle, Ph.D., co-founder and Co-Director of the Regenerative Agriculture Initiative at CSU Chico (and first CEO of the Rodale Institute); and Josh Whiton, a highly successful eco-tech entrepreneur whose most recent project is MakeSoil.org. Hosted by Arty Mangan, Director of Bioneers’ Restorative Food Systems Program.
