As the quality-of-life representative for Southern SARE's administrative council and as a professor of sociology, Doug Constance is constantly thinking about how current policies, cultural norms and industry trends are affecting farmers and their communities. For this episode, he chats with Beth Nelson, Associate Professor of Biosystems Engineering at University of Minnesota and the director of North Central SARE’s research and education programs. They discuss extending sustainability beyond soil and crops to the people and communities most impacted by our country's agricultural practices.

The Our Farms, Our Future Podcast was created to bring people together for important conversations, and to share the knowledge of agricultural professionals with a wider audience. Each episode features two members of the sustainable agriculture community in conversations about success, hardship, fears and hopes, lessons learned and projects to come.
