Podcast: Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture with Lauren Augusta

Our guest this week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast is Lauren Augusta. Lauren is the executive director of MESA, the Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture.

She has worked in the nonprofit and agriculture sectors since 1985. Sustainable Agricultural Global Exchange (SAGE) brings historically underserved beginning farmers, gardeners and learners together to foster community and career pathways in agroecology. We chat about all the great work MESA is doing.
