If you have never been to the Bioneers Conference now is the time to consider it. In fact “now is the time” is a common theme you will hear at Bioneers. Tucked up in San Rafael, at the Marin Center, thousands of change makers converge for a weekend to share, explore and create solutions to these challenging times, for all nations, all species and Gaia herself. The weekend of October 16-18th Bioneers will culminate in a synergy of authors, scientist, indigenous peoples, youth, citizen scientists and so much more! In this interview Joshua Fouts, Executive Director for Bioneers, shares not only what we have to look forward to, but what Bioneers has meant to him.

Many people are also seeking out community gardens to support access to culturally relevant foods. Yet, this is made to be a complex and challenging situation here in the Bay Area where some of the highest property values exist. In this interview I speak with Michelle Glowa Ph.D. who researched and wrote her dissertation on the urban farming movement in the Bay Area, with a focus on land access.
