Farmer Gabe Brown ~ Mima Mounds ~ Aunt Flow ~ Sue Balcom on Spices
Thursday, November 18, 2021 - North Dakota farmer and rancher Gabe Brown has won the Heinz Award for the Environment, complete with $250,000 in prize money. The award acknowledges his work in regenerative agriculture. We re-air a conversation with Brown from November 2019. ~~~ Chuck Lura discusses the interesting phenomena of mima mounds in an episode of Natural North Dakota. ~~~ It’s estimated that nearly 1 in 5 Americans have left or skipped school because they did not have access to menstrual products. Aunt Flow is an organization striving to address that problem, and it works with many organizations, including Minnesota State Community and Technical College, which is now making free period products available in their campus bathrooms. Guest interviewer Brandi Malarkey visits with Madison Jansky, associate director of Equity and Inclusion at MState. ~~~ Sue Balcom is here for a discussion of spices in another installment of Main Street Eats.
