Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Good morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening! Wherever you are, thank you for listening in.
In one of my last conversations with my Father before he passed several years ago, he asked me to tell the stories. I gave my promise, without having a full understanding of what telling the stories meant. Since that time, I have come to know that Dad meant a broader definition of narrative. There are many stories held in the folds of history that must be heard. This thought became the genesis of the podcast, Tea Toast & Trivia
Today, I am joined by my mother, Frances, as we look back to farming in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
The United Nations designated the year 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming (IYFF). This year, on May 29, 2019, the United Nations launched the Decade of Family Farming from 2019 – 2028. My mother was a farmer’s daughter. She knows first-hand the importance of family farming in providing food.
So put the kettle on and join in the discussion. Frances and I look forward to your insights on TeaToastTrivia.com.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Frances and me on Tea Toast and Trivia.
My grandparents were farmers, but very few of their offspring became farmers. We have lost touch with the land and have placed reliance on our efficient food distribution services. There is a growing awareness that we need to find our way back…
One last thought comes from Wendell Berry:
“For the true measure of agriculture is not the sophistication of its equipment the size of its income or even the statistics of its productivity but the good health of the land.”
