THE WINTER GROWERS PODCAST is a brand-new podcast created specifically for growers and farmers looking to expand into four season farming.
Clara has teamed up with the crew behind the No-Till Growers Podcast to launch a new podcast series focused on farming practices specific to year-round growing. The Winter Growers Podcast is packed full of valuable conversations with winter growers from around the country. The overarching theme of this podcast is how farmers have adapted winter growing techniques to their farms to expand their production and sales in northern and temperate climates. Topics range from choosing winter crops, high tunnel production methods, fertility, irrigation, pest, and weed management, sales outlets, Covid pivots, employee management, work/life balance and self-care, incorporating winter growing into your current farming practice, the business side of farming year-round, advantages and challenges of winter growing, and much, much more! Clara talks with a diverse range of growers, not only about how to farm all four seasons, but how to do so and still take care of yourself and the people you love. And like everything she does, these conversations are informed by Clara’s commitment to racial and social justice, as well as self-care.
If you are an experienced winter grower with some valuable lessons to share with listeners or if you have any feedback or other thoughts about the podcast to share, we'd love to hear from you.
