Mandela – JP013
We had the pleasure of interviewing Mandela on todays podcast. Although not discussed, Mandela has an professional history in Agricultural Economics. He founded and is currently operating the Ag Non-Profit ROOTS Africa.
Mandela and I spent these past season growing a couple of crops, compost, and soil together after meeting at a workshop earlier this year. I am certain you will be able to hear, and I hope you will relish our rapport.
Enjoy Mandela’s thoughts, and feel free to share Why you think the healthiest soils are black!
