This week on the show, we’ll speak with three farmers who work small parcels of land in Baltimore County. Becky and Jack Gurly operate Calvert’s Gift Farm in Sparks, MD, where they grow organic vegetables on 5 acres. They also help run a training program for new farmers. They joined us along with Denzel Mitchell, one of their trainees, to discuss the importance of increasing the number of small farmers, to share what it’s like to run a small farm today, and to discuss how they came to the approach to farming that they’ve chosen. Then, join us for a tour of a new shrimp farm that’s being built in an old warehouse in the heart of Baltimore. We’re joined by Peter May, an estuarine ecologist, and Bryon Salladin, an arborist.
