Episode 51

Know Your Elders: Paddy Doherty

This ep: a longform conversation with a farmer who was present and active for all the major milestones of BC's modern organic sector. Paddy Doherty talks about communal farming in the BC Interior in the 70s, why organic farming appealed to him from the get-go, the art of growing great carrots, and his thoughts on the evolution of BC's organic sector.

COG's Organic Production Handbooks, where you can try (I failed) to find the book Paddy refers to in our conversation.

Also: Annelise and Tristan shout-out someone they admire in our community. Want to do that? Record a voice memo, email it to farmer@unearthedorganics.ca, and I'll put it in a future episode.
