The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

Rank #1: Diversity and the importance of tree guilds with Brock Barker from "The Brockoli Patch" farm: 034. This week's interview is with a good personal friend of mine who is an awesome farmer and experimenter with plants, especially trees. I first met Brock Barker through some mutual friends when he came down here to Lake Atitlan to co-teach on a PDC with some colleagues of mine. Now Brock is the founder and owner of “The Brockoli Patch,” a permaculture farm and orchard outside of Lafayete, Louisiana on which manages an incredibly diverse and productive landscape.In this interview Brock talks about how taking a permaculture course with the Bullock brothers in Washington state and seeing a mature permaculture system for the first time changed his perspective and way of doing things on his own farm which was originally a market gardening operation. He goes into detail about the fruit tree guilds that keep his perennials strong and healthy, and shares some wisdom from his experiences, trials and errors over the years.

Rank #2: Everything you need to know to get your natural building off the ground, with Chris Magwood, founder of the Endeavour Center: 124. I’ve been looking forward to speaking with my next guest for a long time now. Chris Magwood is the founder and director of the Endeavour center, which provides experiential education at the intersection of high-performance and natural building. Chris is a self proclaimed building “omnivore” who experiments with any and all materials and techniques he can get his hands on. He has dedicated his career to making the best, most energy efficient, beautiful and inspiring buildings without wrecking the planet in the attempt. I’ve followed his work and especially his books as I’ve been learning about all sorts of natural building innovations because Chris has done an amazing job of comparing and contrasting various natural materials to make it easier to choose which of the options available would be best suited for the context and design of a building. In this interview Chris talks about how he fell in love with natural building as he aspired to build his own home. From there we go into detail about some of the most important considerations when designing a sustainable home and how even natural buildings can be consumptive and wasteful if designed incorrectly for their place and climate. Chris also unpacks some of the popular building standards and why using them as design guides can limit the full potential of an ecologically responsible project if followed too rigidly. We also discuss one of the biggest challenges for natural builders, and that’s the codes and regulations that can be tricky to navigate if the regulatory bodies are treated as adversaries from the beginning. I especially like his observations from his extensive experience working with, rather than against the building inspectors in Canada for so many years. This is a really practical and pragmatic look at the wide variety of options and considerations for natural builders and owner-builders. This episode kicks off a series dedicated to all aspects of building and design that facilitates a regenerative lifestyle. Be sure to stay tuned to the next few weeks of episodes as I’ll be speaking with builders and designers focusing on in-depth topics and natural building materials.Resources:Workshop Schedule from the Endeavour CenterThe Endeavour CenterBuy Chris’ books from New Society Publishers If you’re like me, you’ve dreamed of having a permaculture farm for a long time, but knowing where to start can be tricky, even if you’ve taken a PDC or other design courses. That’s why I want to tell you about the Permaculture Farm Design Course, put together by my friend and frequent contributor to this podcast, William Horvath from thepermacultureapprentice.com. This course is the simplest, easiest way to design your permaculture farm without spending thousands of dollars on in person PDCs, or hiring professional designers or consultants. This course is the culmination of William's research and the most important lessons he learned from permaculture giants like Geoff Lawton, Darren Doherty, David Holmgren, and Mark Shepard, all boiled down to a simple step-by-step roadmap that anyone can follow.William has simplified the entire design process and meticulously laid down how each phase of the process works, with simple instructions and design examples so you can come up with a design for your permaculture farm in as little as one week. You don't even need any previous design experience or a PDC to get the most out of this course, just a willingness to learn and follow the system outlined in the program. In a short time you’ll have a plan that has a clear set of goals to allow you to make your vision a reality What’s more, when you type in the code “design” at checkout, you’ll receive 10% off the price of the course.

This is the World Organic News for the week ending the 21st of January 2019. Jon Moore reporting! Decarbonise the air, recarbonise the soil! A little housekeeping. Some of you have noticed the website is down. I’m discussions with my host about appropriate levels of performance and hope it will be back up soon. In the meantime I’m posting things to the Facebook page if you’re interested. And now to the show. This week we look at some of the faces of regenerative agriculture. From the Manitoba Co-operator a piece entitled: Regenerative agriculture creates a sprawling road map. Quote: Regenerative agriculture has got lots of time in the headlines, but the movement may look very different for an organic farmer with 3,000 acres of annual crops versus a rancher whose land is mostly pasture. End Quote As we can all agree, I think, every piece of land is different, every person will have different vision for their particular piece of land and if we toss in the variability of the weather, different approaches are critical. Whether grazing, cropping, horticulturing (?) or a combination of these, flexibility and the ability to pivot are skills we need. An example will illustrate. Last Northern Summer I observed a 100 acre organic farm in East Cork, Ireland coming to terms with a drought. The last time this occurred with the mid 1970s. There was, therefore, not much institutional memory of what to do in these circumstances. On nearby properties I saw potato paddocks of 20 acres and a single sprinkler with a spread of twenty metres in the middle of the field. It was a pointless but heroic effort. The country itself is not equipped for drought. The image of Ireland as a green paradise is there for a reason. The amount of bare soil became an issue. This was especially so in the outdoor horticultural parts of the farm. Eventually the rain returned but the deficit was obvious. The pastured based sections of the farm were rotated through more quickly than usual as the feed had stopped growing. The grain part of the farm fared best. The barley was well underway before the rains stopped arriving and the soil had a fair amount of moisture from a late finishing winter with an unusually heavy snowfall. The challenges for each section of the enterprise were, therefore, different. This brings us back to the Manitoba Co-operator piece: Quote: Blain Hjertaas of Redvers, Sask., and David Rourke of Minto, Man., were both well-known faces before their panel at the MFGA Regenerative Agriculture Conference in Brandon late last November. For Hjertaas, it’s all about livestock. The longtime beef producer and holistic management instructor counts pasture as a good portion of his land base. He has become a passionate advocate for planned grazing, often called to conferences and workshops to share his experiences with high-density rotational grazing and the benefits he’s seen in his soil organic matter, sequestered carbon, forage yields and pasture performance. But high stock density grazing, with its small paddocks and frequent herd movements, also seems like a long reach for farmers like Rourke, whose operation revolves around annual crops and who has no livestock of his own. Instead, Rourke’s experience with regenerative agriculture slants more towards green manures, field cover and biodiversity. End Quote Either way, you can see the focus on the soil. These two methodologies point to the different effects of the same thought. Keeping the soil covered allows the soil to re-generate. So either through tight grazing regimes or cover crops, the effect is similar. The fossil fuel inputs may well be different but the soil health is the key. And there are good reasons for following the regenerative farming philosophy. Quote: Both are believers in regenerative agriculture, a movement that, among other things, promises more efficient production, resiliency against drought and flood, and the promise that the farm will not only be sustainable with the environment, but actually help regenerate degraded soil. End Quote. And the demand from farmers for these technologies and methodologies is growing. From the CNBC website comes a piece entitled: Thousands of farmers, supporters take to streets in Germany demanding climate-friendly agriculture. Quote: Thousands of farmers from across Germany and their supporters protested at Berlin's landmark Brandenburg Gate on Saturday, calling for climate-friendly agriculture and healthy food. Organizers say 170 tractors drove in from farms around the country to join 35,000 other protesters for the Saturday demonstration under the motto "we are fed up with the agricultural industry." Among other things, the protesters called for more animal welfare and protection. The protest was called to coincide with the German capital's "Green Week" agricultural fair, and Agriculture Minister Julia Kloeckner's meetings with dozens of countries about more international cooperation on agricultural issues, the dpa news agency reported. End Quote. This is a remarkable thing. The actual people with their feet on the ground are calling for support. This means by inference less support for industrial food production. Now the EU is a special case. Given the food shortages caused by war during the twentieth century, subsidised farming is a decision for a safety net rather than a neoliberal “let a thousand flowers bloom ruthless market based approach”. (And yes I am aware I’m quoting Mao in the same sentence as the word neoliberal). With these subsidy systems in place, it is possible to send price signals to farmers, it is just a matter of political will. If the EU and the other great subsidiser, the US of A redirected those subsidies to regenerative practices, farmers would take those practices up. Farmers aren’t stupid and they will follow the money. Hence the huge areas of maize planted in the US as a result of subsidies for that crop. Equally in industrial ag farmers won’t keep using unlimited amounts of glyphosate in the way local councils do to “combat” invasive plant species. Farmers are looking to make a living after all. So redirecting subsidies to regenerative practices and even giving incentives to smaller farmers would have benefits beyond just food production. Employment, carbon drawdown, less reliance of fossil fuels are just a few. And remember small has its own benefits. I can’t find the link but I read some years ago that 85% or something like that percentage of soft fruit in Russia is produced in backyards. Given the size of Russia, the poor travel characteristics of raspberries and other brambles, this makes a certain amount of sense. Again from my Irish Odyssey, I was eating up to 5 kilos of blackberries a week just from the hedgerows as I walked the paddocks of South Kerry. Local food systems with a certain amount of “foraging” food available for people is a wonderful thing. If we can find ways to have people outdoors, collecting “free” food and getting their feet on the soil, we can “sell” the regenerative message more easily. And we need to sell the message. The time is now! And on that note I’ll draw this episode to a conclusion. Remember: Decarbonise the air, recarbonise the soil! So with all the above in mind and the fact we live in the twenty first century, I’m opening up applications for a Regenerative Agriculture Mastermind group. It will be limited to twelve people, we’ll meet weekly, online to discuss our successes, challenges and decisions. The wisdom of the crowd applied to this necessary field of endeavour.

Of course the podcasting checklists are still available over at mrjonmoore.com A transcript of this episode is available at worldorganicnews.com Thank you for listening and I'll be back next week.
