Host and American Family Farmer, Doug Stephan begins with a report from The New York Times warning us how bad cattle are for the planet. Next, we meet Cornell University Graduate Student Morgan Irons. Morgan designed and performed a Mars agriculture experiment for her undergraduate thesis at Duke University. She also designed and patented a new model for a "quasi-closed, agroecological system" for extreme environment habitation on Earth and in space. Additionally, she co-founded the company, Deep Space Ecology Inc in her junior year at Duke based on the realization that no one was publicly working to answer food security questions and human sustainability in the space industry at the time. Her work is supported by the National Science Foundation through their Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Finally, Farmer Doug encourages Farm Employers to set a good example for Farm Employees and Farm Guests by wearing and requiring the use of Face Masks.
