What. A. Guest. Tevin Allen of Tevin's Farm from Jamaica joins the show to talk about how he has adapted market gardening techniques for his climate, adopting a simplified approach because the tools and infrastructure are not available, dealing with a clay-loam soil and flood season, his atypical marketing style, how the country has moved away from organic growing, and how he is bringing it back. All the while expressing nothing but love and joy for the act of farming on a small scale. So much love for this one.
