Ariel Greenwood and Guido Frosini are first-generation ranchers in northern California. They recently organized the first annual Transhumance Festival (the next one is in May of 2019), which brought sheep to the streets, and celebrated the “culture” in “agriculture.”
In this program they talk about the ways in which good grazing practices can restore biodiversity to grasslands, and the importance of cultivating understanding between urban and rural people in order to support genuinely regenerative agriculture and ranching.
