Farming with Intention with
Alicia Brown

Alicia Brown is rooted in intention and it translates to every aspect of her farm, Edible Uprising, in Troy, NY. In this podcast, we start from the ground up, exploring how Alicia and her husband, Ben, approached starting a vegetable farm with over 150 weekly CSA  shares on just an acre of land. It all starts with soil, and we cover the way they care for the soil food web first on their farm. The result? The most delicious and nutrient dense vegetables and vibrant flowers you’ve ever seen. And it’s no coincidence – we discuss how the decline in soil health has directly correlated to the decline in nutrient density in our food. We also dive into what it means to run a human powered farm and to care for our bodies as farmers, what regenerating farmland across the country might look like, about efficiency and functionality and where beauty fits in, and so much more.
We Also Talk About
  • Human powered farming
  • Looking at soil testing
