"Podcasts from the Farm" - Student Projects

“Podcasts from the Farm” is a series of audio stories created by Williams College students in a Winter Study course taught by Mike at the Zilkha Center.  Students attended the Northeast Organic Farming Association’s 2018 Winter Conference, interviewed farmers and other food and farming movers & shakers, and created their own podcast episodes.  The topics students explored include beekeeping, carbon farming, hydroponics, food justice, urban homesteading, herbalism, composting and more.

Big thanks to Patrick Gray who was extremely generous with his time for technical training and assistance – and to NOFA/Mass – especially to Jason Valcourt, Caro Roszell, Lydia Irons, Julie Rawson, and all the folks who agreed to be interviewed at the Winter Conference.

Thanks also to Jay Corey and Rob White who generously shared their insights about interviewing.  And to Jim Lille who provided the recording tools and sound (ha!) guidance for which ones to choose.

We hope you enjoy!
