How can eating sidewalk weeds help you save money on supplements? Is raising chickens in a small, urban space possible? Nutritionist and farmer Diana Rodgers tackles these question and more in today’s podcast. As a sustainable DIY guru who’s been compared to a Paleo Martha Stewart, this Sustainable Dish blogger has a unique perspective on doing your part to stay involved in a farming lifestyle no matter where you live.
How easy is it to become a farmer after college? Diana shares her story of working hard to market her nutritionist role at the farm to having fun playing Chicken Shit Bingo while raising chickens. She explains the best ways to raise livestock, plant herbs and forage for everything from mushrooms to weeds, depending on where you live. Finally, she warns us that eating bad foods “in moderation” isn’t great advice, and shares what she’d recommend for a healthy lifestyle instead.
