🎙️ ✨ EPISODE 4 - Part II: Agriculture the nourishes People and Planet

Episode four dives in to what we need to be doing and thinking about when it comes to supporting the people who grow our food and agriculture that nourishes people and planet. 

Part II explores ideas on how to get more people involved in growing food and into agriculture along the entire value chain. We discuss whether Brandenburg can actually feed Berlin, and we learn more about a yummy, regenerative food item that is both good for the soil and for our bodies.
