Episode: Digging in the Dirt w/ Douglas DeCandia - The Westchester Food Bank

 My next guest on "Digging in the Dirt" is Douglass DeCandia from Katonah, NY. With a degree in Sustainable Agriculture, Doug is the Chapter leader of his local Bionutrient food Association group, who's may concern is how our health is connected to how our food is grown. Doug is currently employed by the Food Bank for Westchester as the Food Growing Program Coordinator, where he teaches and works with youth and adults to grow healthy food that is distributed throughout the county to individuals at-risk of hunger. Their Farm is a collective of 5 sites located around Westchester County. The Food Bank grows food and cares for the gardens using techniques that are life promoting and supportive of our, and the land's natural tendency toward growth. At the heart of their work together is recognizing that by healing the land we are also are healing ourselves. Join us on "Digging in the Dirt" on listener supported 89.5 fm WPKN.org
