Episode 009: Kathleen Finlay


This week I talk to Kathleen Finlay, Director of Glynwood, a nonprofit agricultural think tank and advocacy organization in Cold Spring. I've been a fan of theirs for a long time, and since she came on as director they've accomplished a great deal. We discuss the importance of goats, and of training farmers, and how essential regional food systems are to the health of individuals, communities, and the environment.
