The Reluctant Therapist: Meeting agriculture at the crossroad of sustainability

 As the world population grows, water becomes more scarce and access to healthy foods more challenging - how will we meet the demands on agriculture in this country? In this "best-of" Conversation with the Reluctant Therapist, Elizabeth Barrett talks with two farmers from very different backgrounds who are trying to keep the art of growing crops alive in creative and sustainable ways. Meet Farmer John from Half Moon Bay, California and Bloom Liepman from San Luis Obispo and many other corners of the planet.


Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
