Today, we host Deb and Ricky Habib of Seeds of Solidarity in Massachusetts on the podacst. They’re a couple of real no-till OGs. We talk about their 30 years of experience turning forest soil into a prolific market garden through the use of cardboard and compost, their off-grid lifestyle and approach to farming systems, and some of the awesome ways in which they’ve connected with their local community, including stating a non-profit and a garlic festival. AND they recently published a book, Making Love While Farming, a Field Guide to a Life of Passion & Purpose. Really loved our conversation, I think you will, too.
