Notices, Workshops & Rides: FRR#98, The Urban Farmer - Curtis Stone
Free Range Radio Sunday Feb 21, 2021 on CKTZ 89.5 FM and cortesradio.ca 730 to 930 pm. Tonight the Urban Farmer Curtis Stone. This is from his website; https://theurbanfarmer.co/about-curtis/
“Curtis Stone is a farmer, author, speaker and consultant. His area of expertise is in quick growing, high value annual vegetables for direct consumer market streams. His book, The Urban Farmer demonstrates organic intensive techniques with a focus on business and systems to streamline labour and production. He offers a new way to think about farming. One where quality of life and profitability coexist.”
Curtis and I have a decent chat about the challenges around attempting a ‘market garden’ in the time of lockdown. Which to my surprise he does not recommend. But this knowledge of gardening and Microgreens is still available for the person interested in growing their own food.
Curtis speaks his mind and I let him. That’s why I have a show; to hear the Free Range point of view. Sadly for me he drifted into politics and did not stay focused on the ‘Big Joy’ (my remedy for the times) There will be triggers. But radio is like any relationship- you gotta hear the other person out!
