Down to Earth is a podcast about hope. As climate change collides with our industrial food system, we focus not on doom but instead 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.

Register for the 2018 Comanche Creek Volunteer Weekend!

August 2-5


Join Quivira and restoration experts Bill Zeedyk, Jeff Adams, Mark Reineke, Margie Tatro, and Richard Smith in work to improve wetland function and keep the creeks flowing in the Valle Vidal. 

Friday and Saturday, we will be working in the Foreman tributary to Comanche Creek. This is a truly beautiful area, not easily accessible to the public. As always, we will be moving rocks, sod, and logs. Come to get muddy and then to relax in camp with friends old and new. 

On Sunday, we will be exploring using the concept of Keyline Design for slope wetland restoration with Jan-Willem Jansens of Ecotone and the rest of the team. There will be a brief introduction to Keyline Design Principles and then a hands-on volunteer project to implement the designs in Holman Creek. It's possible just to come for Sunday.
