Cultivating Place: Connection & Diversity from a Landscape Perspective, Cheetah Tchudi of Turkeytail Farm & Butte Remediation
It’s the height of summer farmers markets as community hubs, and this week we're in conversation with Cheetah Tchudi co-founder with his wife Sami and his parents, Susan and Steve Tchudi, of Turkeytail Farm, a small diversified organic family farm serving the community of Butte County California.
Cheetah is also the founder and Program Director of Butte Remediation, providing support to home and property owners by testing soils for contamination, targeting the contaminants with fungi capable of remediating those toxins, and measuring success with follow-up fungal tissue and soil sampling.
Cheetah, passionate about mushrooms and fungal life, devised this kind of bioremediation support for his region following the devastation of the Campfire of 2018, which burned much of his farm and farm buildings.
Cheetah joins Cultivating Place for a conversation about the importance of small family farms supporting their communities and connection and diversity as strength from a land perspective. Listen in!
