Regenerative Agriculture Water Quality Greenhouses Bees >>

EPISODE #5

AIRED: 09-15-2020

This episode we covered regenerative agriculture practices regarding cover cropping and distribution of food systems. Tied in to that discussion we talked a little bit about water quality as it relates to foliars feeds and their efficacy as well as irrigation and even how water quality can GREATLY reduce the amount of pesticides and herbicides required to achieve the same goal even in conventional chemical agriculture systems. We also talked about bees and their life cycle a bit as it pertains to fall nest building and sustaining through the winter. In the scope of the bee discussion we talked about how YOU can help the bees in your own way without having to have a bee colony or understand them on a more intimate level. Finally, we talked about my greenhouse here in Tivoli, NY and it’s evolution from when I first built it as a thermal mass in-ground furnace heated system to it’s current rendition today where I used a wood stove and water tanks as well as a Raspberry Pi (small single-board inexpensive computer) to monitor and control all the functions required to manage the greenhouse environment.
