Quivira has two podcasts!

Regeneration Rising is a podcast for beginning or interested agrarians about the trials, tribulations, and joys of a life in regenerative agriculture. Each episode will feature conversations with apprentices and other young agrarians, tips from regenerative ag experts, job announcements, and more. Originally started by Shawna Burhans and Ariel Bobbett, two young agrarians, season two is now being led by Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program. As we face the challenge of repopulating our fields and rangelands with a new generation of stewards, we’re building a community of ranchers and farmers who are committed to a thriving workforce and the future of food, agriculture, and working lands. They are our Regeneration Rising.

Down to Earth is a podcast about hope. As climate change collides with our industrial food system, we focus on people who are developing practical, innovative solutions. We invite you to meet farmers, ranchers, scientists, land managers, writers, and many others on a mission to create a world in which the food we eat is healthy—for us, for the land and water from which it springs, for the lives and livelihoods of the producers, and for the planet.

Quivira has co-produced this podcast with Mary Charlotte Domandi and Radio Cafe.
