Biodynamic farming is a growing trend for California vineyards

Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso Robles is a 120-acre property that not only grows wine grapes, but houses animals as well. A flock of sheep at Tablas Creek helps maintain a farming process called Biodynamics.

The goal of the process is to help a vineyard function more efficiently.  It's “a practical way of removing weeds in the vineyard," said Levi Glenn, the vineyard's viticulturist. He says this is the number one benefit of having a flock of sheep roaming around the property.

Nothing is more therapeutic than a faithful friend, and there is no friend more faithful than a beloved pet.  Tune in for A Conversation with the Reluctant Therapist, Elizabeth Barrett and guest Dr. Steven Paulick, about the mental health benefits of animal companions, and how we can best care for our pets who so selflessly care for us.
