This episode, my conversation with farmer, academic, and author Chris Smaje. Chris is the author of a new book called A Small Farm Future: Making the Case for a Society Built Around Local Economies, Self-Provisioning, Agricultural Diversity, and a Shared Earth. The book takes as a given that various environmental, economic, and political crises of recent decades will bring about great changes to our society. Chris argues in the book that the best way to confront these changes is the establishment of low-carbon, locally self-reliant, agrarian communities. In this conversation, Chris and I will discuss the Small Farm Future he envisions.
