Mark Epstein is todays guest on Green Planet Blue Planet Podcast, just a few weeks ago Julian visited him at his farm in North Carolina. Mark is leading the "Financial Flow" of Hypha, he has a background as a mathematician and computer scientist. He is also the owner of a vegan farm, called Flow Farm, where his mission is to grow health, organic and vegan food.
In this episode we are talking about:
Mark's passion for farming and his story around building Flow Farm
How a decade of building soil was his personal preparation for the Regenerative Movement
Reverence and appreciation for the natural world that allows us to build new systems
True cost of our impact on nature
In Mark's words:
"I always really loved farms, and I grew up a vegetarian and so it made sense to me to grow some of our own food. Farming is a noble exploration into the wonder and miracle of life. How do those seeds know what to do? And how can we assist in a positive way for the whole environment? We apply a blend of science, art, and intuition into our farming techniques, and a lot of hard work. I delight in walking around the farm, and looking at everything that we’re creating. Jules and me and our boys are vegan, so having our farm be veganic is a simple extension of our own values. And, that feels good. And, I love eating the food!"
