Jackson on Our Turn At This Earth HPPR

March 13, 2020

Post Carbon Fellow Wes Jackson was featured in this episode of High Plains Public Radio’s Out Turn at this Earth.

From the article:

Wes’s ideas never fail to ring true to me because they are rooted in the earth, and nothing is more solid, or true, than the earth. At the close of this speech, he held up a fragment of a clay irrigation tile he found when paying a visit to the eastern Kansas farmstead where he grew up – “on the back of a hoe,” he is fond of saying, cultivating crops and guiding water down irrigation ditches. The tile has sentimental value to him and now hangs on his office wall because of his history on that land.
