How much trash do you generate in a year? Today's guest heretic, Kathryn Kellogg, will teach us a thing or two about the simple steps we can take to minimize the impact of our actions on soil and waterways. We'll compare long and short term costs of our decisions and take the romance out of minimalist living, while keeping the extra cash we save in our pockets.

Kathryn Kellogg, the founder of Going Zero Waste and forthcoming author of 101 Ways to Go Zero Waste, breaks eco-friendly, sustainable living down into an easy step -by-step process with lots of positivity and love!

Beyond Organic; Healing Our Soil; Remediating Fukushima Radiation; Guest Jeremiah Hinton of Maxwell FarmsIt's no secret that factory farming has eroded our top soil, but is organic really the answer?

So what IS the answer? This week, our guest, Jeremiah Hinton of Maxwell Farms explains the benefits of building the microorganisms in soil with Bokashi composting, fish emulsion and other cheap soil-building techniques that use ingredients that might already be in your kitchen. These natural farming techniques will leave your soil healthier and more nutrient rich than before you planted your crops!

For those who aren't ready to start soaking fish guts in sugar, Jeremiah sells his fish emulsion on his website at Maxwell Farms Hawai'i.
