The great Marybeth Sanchez, pest management specialist and regenerative agriculture proponent- @mbsipm on Instagram - is back on the show! This time Marybeth focuses in on the old growing ways that she left behind- specifically synthetic fertilizing. Marybeth talks about how modern agricultural fertilizers and produced, and the incredible toll that the extraction of these nutrients take on the plant. She also shares an interesting point that not all "salt nutrients" are produced in an unsustainable way, some practices are indeed consciously coordinated and fully sustainable- which may come as a surprise to some. Marybeth highlights the incredible advantage of the regenerative organic approach though, where the need for things like mining and industrial production is totally excluded. Marybeth also answers a few listener questions about pest management, including a question regarding the application of natural pesticide sprays onto a garden that uses beneficial insects to combat pests.
