Car trips and plane trips - they are both full! The perks of road trips are they give you flexibility to go at your own pace, stop as much as you need, and of course, pack more!! Let's talk about some things we've found to make road trips with toddlers and babies a little bit easier.     Plane Travel with Kids: https://kidswhoexplore.com/podcasts/ep-81-travelling-with-kids-with-margaret-bradford/    What to “Play” With:  Like plane, start with nothing…look out windows, talk about what you see, play music  Then, pull out one thing at a time – no mess colouring, books, Pop-It. Some people say dollar store items. Maybe something new that's exciting  Let them choose music (or podcast)    What Stops Look Like:  It's recommended young kids aren't in their car seat for more than 2 hours at a time  Stop to stretch legs and eat  Find a park  Find a mini view point hike/nature walk  Stop at a beach  Embrace anywhere you stop!    Sleep Tips:  Play music that helps them fall asleep  Use soother with clip, so it's not easy to lose  Wool socks to keep them cozy!    Food:  Pack a cooler  You can never have too much food…we know this!    Bonus Tips:  Pack a toddler toilet!  Have a travel pack/bag/box for each person, so everything is easy to find when in the car  One adult can sit in the backseat with kid(s), if this works for you  Practise with some shorter road trips beforehand  Build excitement before you go and communicate with kids about it   Be flexible! Know that you may need to stop sooner than you would like. Naps may get messed up. Keep expectations at bay!    Thank you to Keen Footwear for sponsoring today's podcast!

Anna Borgman is a butcher, slaughterwoman, ardent reader, and curious student of life. In this episode we dive deep into one of the most unexplored aspects of our food system: the processor, the butcher, the slaughterhouse. The place where animals make their transition to food through the portal of death. We dive into what this means: what it means for the people working there, how our current culture misses this step in the food chain, and what it means to “turn the hard work of farmers into food.” Anna and I also talk about our own relationships with death and how anxieties around death led her to get closer to understanding something that can never be fully understood. We didn't stop there, though, and in this episode we talk about how our bodies may just be vehicles for microbes, seeking out disconfirmation, leveraging curiosity, and so much more.

Now they run Holy Lamb Organics, trying to help people find healthier sleep options and are both a wealth of knowledge and deeply passionate about their business.

More than 100 years have passed since Shaniko, Oregon, went from "Wool Capital of the World" to forgotten spur of the Union Pacific Railway. A dozen miles from Shaniko, R.R. Hinton was the area's largest producer of sheep and wool at his Imperial Stock Ranch, raising Columbia sheep for meat and wool. When Dan and Jeanne Carver bought the Imperial Stock Ranch in the 1980's, they established a conservation plan—not something many working farms did at the time, but something that Dan saw as vitally important. To preserve the water and soil of their thousands of acres, the Carvers turned to unexpected partners: the cattle and sheep who grazed their high desert land. Sheep have a reputation for damaging the ecosystem by overgrazing, but Dan and Jeanne believed that careful stewardship through intensive rotational grazing, humane predator management, and water conservation could bring grazing animals back in balance with the landscape. In 2017, the Carvers accepted a challenge to become the first ranch certified under the Responsible Wool Standard, which establishes criteria for the welfare of sheep, ecosystem, and working conditions used to produce the wool. As consumer demand for sustainably produced wool grew, the Carvers founded Shaniko Wool Company to join with other family ranches in obtaining RWS certification and delivering ethically and ecologically sound wool. Shaniko Wool comprises ten ranches whose practices are independently audited. Based on the environmental benefits she witnessed, Jeanne was certain that the sheep and their agricultural practices were a net benefit to the natural world, but over the past several years, she has taken steps to prove it. Through measurements of the soil and audits of their emissions, Shaniko Wool Company has documented that their ranching operations offset tons of greenhouse gas emissions by capturing tons of carbon in the soil. Listening to Jeanne Carver talk about her family's goals and results for their ranch offers an inspiring message for those of us who love wool and ecosystem conservation: with careful management, sheep can be an undeniable force for good.

In time for winter wardrobe & gift-giving, we review the many eco problems with the wool industry and what materials fashion-makers and consumers can support instead (like organic cotton and bamboo). The role of raising, killing, and processing farmed animals, like sheep, for fiber/clothing is often overlooked in environmental discourse (as we tend to just focus on the meat industry). So in this 27-minute podcast for In Tune to Nature, host Carrie Freeman talked with Stephanie Feldstein of The Center for Biological Diversity about their recent report (with the Collective Fashion Justice group) called "Shear Destruction: Wool, Fashion & the Biodiversity Crisis," https://www.collectivefashionjustice.org/shear-destruction where Feldstein notes that “From habitat degradation caused by grazing sheep to the chemicals used in scouring, the entire process of rearing sheep and turning shorn wool into usable fiber is riddled with threats to wildlife.” The extensive report has creative and beautiful artwork by Ari Liloan (as seen in the cover illustration I'm using). You can find out more about the Center for Biological Diversity at https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/  In Tune to Nature is a weekly show airing on Wednesdays from 6:30-7pm EST on Atlanta indie radio station WRFG (Radio Free Georgia) 89.3FM hosted by Carrie Freeman, Sonia Swartz, or Melody Paris.

Before The Holland Wool Collective came along, tons of wool was going to waste. There was a gap between people who had wool, people who processed it into a usable product, and wholesalers or designers who needed the material.Farmers in the Netherlands needed more options as far as who to send their wool to; there wasn't anyone gathering that material to send it to be processed it into usable medium– like felt or yarn. At least, not until Janne de Hoop and her partner Mirthe Snoek came along.Within a week of launching their website, they had received at least 30 calls from sheep farmers with wool to get rid of. Still in the early stages, Janne from the Hollands Wol Colletief gives us a sneak-peek into what goes on behind the scenes in this start-up cooperative that utilizes what, in the past, was going to waste.

She is an extraordinary person, who has traveled the world in the name of fiber, and has been attending Rhinebeck for over 35 years.If you're not familiar with this event, here's a little information about it. The first festival was held in 1972 and it's been held every October since at the Dutchess County Fair grounds. It started out with just a few people wanting buy, trade, and sale there fiber products and animals and has grown to have an annual attendance of 35,000 plus people.Links:https://sheepandwool.comhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_State_Sheep_and_Wool_Festivalhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiber_arthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_spinningSupport the show

Lamb lessons for dietitians: Episode 89

Did you know that a three ounce serving of lamb delivers 23 grams of protein – almost 50% of your daily protein needs? Lamb is a great meat, but largely misunderstood. Michigan farmer Elaine Palm wants to change that. She is a partner on her family's farm in Michigan, where she and her two parents raise sheep for meat and for breeding stock, plus the crops and pasture that support the sheep flock. She and her husband Rick have goals to raise their new baby on the farm. Like many farmers, Elaine and Rick have careers off the farm and spend many mornings, evenings, weekends and vacation days building the farm business. Elaine shares "When people find out I raise sheep, I get two main questions: 'Oh, like for the wool?,' and, 'Oh, how can you eat those cute little things?' When people think of the image of a lamb, I think they're often thinking about newborns at around 8-15 pounds, which can be a barrier to considering putting lamb on your plate. However, the reality is that a lamb is any sheep under one year, and lamb meat comes from animals that have, literally, more meat on their bones. Lamb meat is varied across the industry depending on age, breed type, size and body composition at the time of marketing a lamb. Lamb is often used as a specialty meat for holidays, celebrations and special events, but lamb is a great choice for lean protein any time!" She also wants dietitians to know the choices that farmers make in their business practices allow for more choice in the marketplace. "Just because I might farm one way doesn't mean that everyone should. We do what works best for our family, and we're always adapting. And all of the overwhelming options in the stores...or at farmers markets, on-farm markets, wherever you're buying food...they all come from the diversity of farm products and farm practices. That should be celebrated!"

Hannah and Justin Floyd are the creators of an intriguing material, called SolidWool. The composite is made up of wool, which is used as the reinforcement, and bio-resin that acts as a binder. The wool itself comes from the Herdwick sheep found in the Lake District that was once a staple of the carpet industry but which has recently fallen out of vogue. According to the Floyds, some farmers have taken to burning fleeces because they were fetching next to nothing on the open market. So instead, they set about finding a new use for something increasingly considered as waste and imbuing it with value. The finished result is beautifully smooth and probably best compared to fibreglass. When Grant first came across the duo at a show in Milan almost a decade ago, they were displaying a range of items made from the material, including: knives, sunglasses, a table and, perhaps most importantly, the extremely elegant Hembury Chair. After a serious health scare, the pair sold their company to Roger Oates Design in 2020. It put a new version of the Hembury back into production, with Justin staying on as a consultant. In this episode we talk about: how SolidWool is made; the importance of beauty; issues with Herdwick wool; taking inspiration from where they lived; the desire to produce ‘products with purpose'; the importance of play; why designers love chairs; working together; overcoming cancer; selling the company; and Justin's unfinished business with SolidWool.

God is the author of the book. It is a record of a fallen people, compiled by inspired men for our blessing today. Those people never had the book—it was meant for us. Mormon…abridged centuries of records. God, who knows the end from the beginning, told him what to include in his abridgment that we would need for our day.”(Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, May 1975)“The scarlet dye of the Old Testament was not only colorful but also colorfast, meaning that its vivid color stuck to the wool and would not fade no matter how many times it was washed. [See “Scarlet, Crimson, Snow, and Wool,” Ensign, Dec. 2016, 64–65.] Satan wields this reasoning like a club: white wool stained scarlet can never go back to being white. But Jesus Christ declares, “My ways [are] higher than your ways,” and the miracle of His grace is that when we repent of our sins, His scarlet blood returns us to purity. It isn't logical, but it is nevertheless true.” [2019–A:73, Sharon Eubank, Christ: The Light That Shines in Darkness]“Today I testify of miracles. Being a child of God is a miracle. Receiving a body in His image and likeness is a miracle.The gift of a Savior is a miracle.The Atonement of Jesus Christ is a miracle. The potential for eternal life is a miracle. While it is good to pray for and work for physical protection and healing during our mortal existence, our supreme focus should be on the spiritual miracles that are available to all of God's children. No matter our ethnicity, no matter our nationality, no matter what we have done if we repent, no matter what may have been done to us—all of us have equal access to these miracles. We are living a miracle, and further miracles lie ahead.” [2017–O:88, Donald L.
