COSMIC INFLUENCES ON AGRICULTURAL PROCESSES: A Conversation with Organic Farming Pioneer Harry MacCormack

Harry MacCormack is legendary in the annals of the Oregon organic farming movement. A co-founder of Oregon Tilth, he has gone on to help organize numerous other sustainable food projects including the Ten Rivers Food Web and the Willamette Valley Bean and Grain Project. On this episode of Locus Focus, Harry joins host Barbara Bernstein to talk about his new book, COSMIC INFLUENCES ON AGRICULTURAL PROCESSES, which concerns itself with the impact of celestial forces on agriculture in the Willamette Valley. We'll also discuss how climate change and other potential cataclysms need to be factored into future agricultural scenarios for the region.

Harry MacCormack has been living and farming on Sunbow Farm outside of Corvallis, Oregon since 1972.


Oregon State Bank

Friends of Family Farmers is working in collaboration with the Working Families Party to get a state bank in Oregon, like the one in North Dakota. Unfortunately, I just got an email from my state rep, that it doesn't look like it's going to happen this session. This is a subject I will be covering in the future.
