Generative Green Acres — Dave Chal, Chad Bitler, Peggy Schatz

Across America there are a few special places where  farm based, private,  non-profit organizations carry out programs for the pubic good. In the Ohio River Valley on the northeast rim of the 2 million population Cincinnati metropolitan area, is one of those special places: Greenacres Farm. The Farm was established by Louis and Louise Nippert  to preserve for the public an area reflecting the traditional environment and historic significance of its woodland and farmland–encouraging conservation and appreciation of nature, music, arts and sustainable “generative farming” of livestock and vegetables. A picturesque drive through rolling hills and pastureland brings us to Greenacres Farm for table talk with Peggy Schatz, Farm Sales & Office Manager; Chad Bitler, Research Scientist; and Dave Chal, Garden Production Manager.  It’s a lively conversation that explores the past, future and consumer interest in biodynamic and generative farming. www.green-acres.org
