Caring For Prairie
As explained in the podcast launching of The Sociological Review, Jenny Reardon is biking through Kansas talking to farmers, ranchers and other denizens of the prairie about how best to know and care for the prairie. How does one care for the land and the lives it supports in the face of the water running out in the high plains of Western Kansas, and flooding in Eastern Kansas? In the face of towns struggling to survive, and high tech “precision” approaches to agriculture raising new hopes and new concerns?
Jenny Reardon speaks to UCSC Politics Professor Ronnie Lipschutz and host of Sustainability Now about her project biking through Kansas on Santa Cruz local radio Station KSQD.
