A road trip to the Old Settlers Days parade in Maxwell introduced the civic pride and historical significance of this small Iowa town including several interviews with local citizens.
Then Jerry Hatfield, Laboratory Director of the National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment, explored the effects of CO2 on the nutrition of Iowa crops. That led to a discussion of Agroforestry with Luke Gran of Prudenterra, a comany that works with landowners to restore prairies, pastures, and woodlands.
And finally we heard from Tim Ryan, recent presidential candidate, talking about regenerative agriculture, workers' issues, and children's questions.
