Hosted by Quinn Founder, Kristy Lewis, The Be Better. Do Better.™ podcast showcases people fighting for change, questioning, seeking, learning, and doing this differently, for the better, despite how flippin’ hard it might be.
Episode 1: Dave Vetter
Today, we’re chatting with regenerative organic farmer and all around super hero, Dave Vetter. Dave is a real legend in regenerative agriculture, these farming practices can actually reverse global warming by improving the health of the soil.
Dave and I have known eachother for 9 years, he supplies the organic corn in our popcorn, and honestly Quinn might not exist without his belief in our vision. If you’d like to support the future of farming and the Dave’s non-profit, The Grain Place Foundation, click here. Also, since we’ve all finished Netflix, add Dreaming of a Vetter World to your must watch list.
Episode 2:Steve Tucker
Twenty years ago, Steve Tucker inherited his grandfather’s farm in Western Nebraska. Since then, he was worked endlessly to learn and improve how he farms. Today, we’re at that very farm talking to Steve about how we’re working together to plant 85 acres of sorghum, aka milo, using regenerative ag practices. Steve and I have a lot in common, we’re each hopelessly optimistic or some might say, just a little crazy. We both have a passion for dramatic film scores and we love Interstellar, particularly the corn chase scene.
Episode 3: Philip Taylor
Kristy chats with Phil Taylor, the Founder and Executive Director of Mad Agriculture, which works alongside farmers to advance regenerative agriculture through farm planning, financing through their recently launched Perennial Fund, and crop + carbon markets.
In a lively and introspective conversation on a sunny afternoon in Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO, Kristy and Phil discuss race, social issues, humanity, morning rituals, and a big vision for a better future through farming and beyond.
