LH 96: The Secrets to Living Farm Fresh

Top Experts Share Their Secrets to Living a More Organic Lifestyle

I’m really excited to have put together a group podcast for you all. I’ve got everything covered from eating your backyard plants, fermenting foods, and staying low-stress in daily life.

Five experts, whom have all been on the podcast previously, have given me great snippets into their areas of expertise. I trust you will enjoy listening to them as much as I did recording them!


You will learn:

  • How find new organic flavors
  • Where to source inexpensive organic produce
  • How you can find edibles in surprising places
  • How to get over the fear of fermentation
  • Simple steps to reduce stress
  • Why we should sometimes embrace failure
