Utah's Geology and Biodynamic Farms on Science Questions
Today on the program, we talk to former oil industry geologist Marc Deshowitch about the geology of Utah's national parks and the ancient history of oil. Deshowitch, who is based in St. George, now gives guided tours of Utah's parks and presentations on light pollution and the benefits of preserving our night skies.
Then Science Questions explores biodynamic farming with one of the first biodynamic farms in the U.S - Live Power Farm. Founder Stephen Decater uses a team of horses to fertilize and seed his fields with a diversity of vegetable and fruit crops. He sees the farm as a whole organism where all its park work together without the use of fossil fuels or any outside materials.
