Ep.7 Bren Smith: Ocean Gardens

Transform the Food System

16-07-2021 • 56 min

A commercial fisherman turned kelp and oyster farmer, Bren’s award-winning book, Eat Like a Fish, shows us how our oceans offer up a scalable solution to our global climate crisis.

Breaking down the walls between land and sea, learn about Bren’s polyculture farming model with GreenWave and his regenerative ocean farm on Thimble Island. We talk about how kelp is set to be the superfood of the future, with Bren telling us that it contains more vitamin C than orange juice, more calcium than milk and more protein than soybeans. Plus, it has the power to sequester five times more carbon than land-based plants.

This is a profoundly personal episode that brings us real hope for the future.
