Joey Smith runs Let’s Go Farm in Santa Rosa, California, on the land where he grew up. For the last five years, he has grown a very wide variety of vegetables bound for a Community Supported Agriculture and for the Windsor Farmers Market. Joey also works and teaches hands-on vegetable farming at Shone Farm, which belongs to Santa Rosa Junior College, a community college here in Sonoma County. Joey, like Devon, is an alum of UC Santa Cruz and of Food First’s internship program. In this episode, Devon and Joey talk about young people farming, growing unusual vegetables, a strategy for ending hunger in Sonoma County, and the farmers - one down the street and one in rural Costa Rica - that have inspired Joey.
Our interview with Joey airs January 4th, 2016.
