Podcast highlights therapeutic benefits of sustainable ag

Sometimes you can find the benefits of sustainable agriculture in unexpected places.

In a new Voices from the Field podcast, Therapy and Sustainable Agriculture, National Center for Appropriate Technology sustainable agriculture specialist Felicia Bell talks with Cammie Kitchens, chief executive officer of Fondren Cove Assisted Living in Jackson, Mississippi.

Fondren Cove helps people with mental health issues, and Kitchens’ interest in sustainable agriculture began with an idea that being around farm animals could be therapeutic for clients. He also became an advocate of the role that fresh, nutritious food can play in health.
