S2:E9 – The Conversationalist: Are Farms Business or Not? with the Jefferson Center

Can small farms work? What does Holistic Financial Planning have to say?

This is Session 4 of The Conversationalist, an intimate series within the Wildland Podcast, built to inspire thought via conversating with the wild. Our vision in this series is to foster and nurture intensely deep and richly philosophical conversations around the co-creation of a much better world, together, in community, and in our places.

The title of this series, The Conversationalist, is taken from an Essay by Wendell Berry, wherein he says, “An agriculture using nature as its measure would approach the world in the manner of a conversationalist. It would not impose its vision and its demands upon a world that it conceives of as a stockpile of raw materials. …Now we must think of marriage.”

Conversations leading to the co-creation of a more beautiful world by stepping beyond nature as raw materials and by stepping into nature as a marriage.

This video/audio is a conversation between Abbey, Andrea, and Jackie of the Jefferson Center for Holistic Management and Daniel Firth Griffith of Robinia and Timshel. It is a truly unique discussion around farm businesses, holistic financial planning, and so much more!
