This week I’m thankful for my own garden, of course, but also for the good fresh food grown for all of us by so many hard-working souls wherever you are, from San Francisco to Cincinnati to Syracuse, and here where I am. Pyramid Farms is a small organic, integrated family farm of humans led by Matthew Martin and Lisa Carle.

Famous for the carrots, and also growing more than 30 varieties of fresh produce and flowers year-round, living with the soil, with flora and fauna and the seasons of their place, and with the 365 days a year of hard work that farming is.

They wouldn’t do life any other way, and as Matthew and Lisa say – you can taste the love. It’s a good week for this kind of gratitude. Listen in!

Cultivating Place now has a donate button! We thank you so much for listening over the years and we hope you'll support Cultivating Place.

We can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations.

The show is available as a podcast onSoundCloud,iTunes, Google Podcast, and Stitcher. To read more and for many more photos please visit
