Waterpeople podcast - Fergal Smith: Grounded

What is enough to move you to action? For heavy water specialist Fergal Smith, nuclear meltdown became the impetus for a radical shift in life and livelihood.

As the founder of Moy Hill farm, Fergal and his team aim to “grow worthy food, build soil, regenerate systems, plant flowers and trees, and work to leave what is in their care healthier than they found it," while also nurturing community.

Fergal talks us beyond the romanticisation of farming, and into the muddy complexity of what it means to grow food for one's community, --- and why it's still so difficult to make a living as a farmer. Also, why surfers are (mostly) airheads, and probably more farmers should ride waves.
