5 PM: Digging in the Dirt – In an effort to spotlight local farmers and gardeners who are trying to use cutting edge techniques to grow healthy, quality organic food, Kevin’s next guest on “Digging in the Dirt” will be farmer Douglass DeCandia, or “Digs”, currently working as a farm manager for an Non-profit Organization called SPACE on Ryder Farm, an organic farm located on the grounds of a 224-year-old family homestead in Putnam County, New York, just an hour north of New York City. SPACE hosts residencies for artists and activists. Doug is part of this collective of individuals working to make space for people to connect deeply with each other, with humanity and with the land. As a farmer, Doug is committed to healthy soil, growing and sharing food and medicine, and to the healing of both people and the earth. SPACE’s mission is to create an environment singular in its ability to invigorate artists and innovators and their work, and to contribute to the sustainability and resourceful preservation of one of the oldest organic family farms on the East Coast.
