On my “Balagan” today, for the interview segment (Digging in the Dirt) I’ll speak with Elizabeth Dyck, founder and co-ordinator of OGRIN, and PhD in Plant Science, from the University of Maine, Orono, through their sustainable agriculture program. She has conducted participatory research with organic and low-input farmers and gardeners in Kenya, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania. At the family owned, Global Organic Alliance Certified, Crimson Clover Farm, she conducts research, demonstrates organic management, and grows vegetables. We’ll talk about growing organic grains, and her organization The Organic Growers’ Research and Information-Sharing Network (OGRIN), which generates practical information for organic farmers and gardeners through participatory research, review articles, fact sheets on issues critical to organic farming, and by providing forums for information-exchange between growers. Elizabeth has been growing organically for almost 50 years!
