Reminder! Our hands can do more than type and text. In fact, they can grow things. On today's show — and in honor of National Gardening Day! — permaculture expert Kareen Erbe lists countless tangible and intangible benefits associated with active participation in your local growing community; she also offers practical suggestions for getting off our screens and reengaging with the natural world.   Here's a preview: [8:00] Industrializing our food systems has benefits, sure.
