Valuable Information and Fun!
I love this podcast. I discovered it after Nicole was a guest on another Heritage Radio podcast (Farm Report). Nicole provides information on a variety of topics all relevant to those of us trying to work land that we have in our neighborhoods. Keep up the great work Nicole!!!! Update: I really think Nicole has become one of the best sustainability and smallholding podcasters out there. She brings to listeners a broad spectrum of information from guests who are experts in their fields. Her questions are insightful and always add to the conversation.
