Author and editor emeritus

Rachel's interest in sustainable agriculture and grazing has deep roots in the soil. She's been following that passion around the world, working on an ancient Nabatean farm in the Negev, and with farmers in West Africa's Niger. After returning to the US, Rachel received her M.S. and Ph.D. in agronomy and soil science from the University of Maryland. For her doctoral research, Rachel spent 3 years working with Maryland dairy farmers using management intensive grazing. She then began her work with grass farmers, a source of joy and a journey of discovery.

    My immediate thought is to go and seed what’s available in my local pet food shop. It won’t be a specific variety but I should get viable pigeon pea seed.

  2. Dr Larry Milham says:

    I am trying to Improve a 20.622 acre pasture for horses. It has been dormant or unused since the beginning of time. It consists primarily of Brakken Fern and noxious and invasive weeds.
