With about twelve hours of driving each week this semester, I've committed to making the best use of commute time. If you've ever looked for podcasts or audio books on dissertation research, you'll know there's not much out there; even less so for autoethnography. There's a lot on writing generally, but the topic is so broad, it can be overwhelming. Same for gardening and food systems, which is where my personal and research/writing goals intersect. And, it's important for educators, researchers, and likewise busy people to be able to draw on resources that support mindfulness and such. So, here is what I've selected (of what's available through Spotify) to focus and motivate me this spring:
The Dissertation Podcast
Dining Room Dissertation
Academic Woman Amplified (Cathy Mazak)
Ann Kroeker, Writing Coach
The One You Feed
The joe gardener Show
Food Sleuth Radio
Know of other podcasts or audio books for dissertation writers and gardeners? Let's connect.
P.S. I will be presenting at two conferences this spring:
Campus Farmer Summit
February 22 at Stonehill College
Feeding Monadnock: Gardening as Learning, Conservation, and Partnership
The Westmoreland Garden Project is a collaboration of Antioch University New England (AUNE), a nonprofit graduate institution in Keene, NH; the Cheshire County Conservation District, which lends conserved farmland at a former correctional facility to grow produce; and The Community Kitchen, which receives and distributes produce to community members in need of fresh, nourishing food. The Project, which includes a high tunnel greenhouse, vegetable and perennial beds, beehives, and an outdoor teaching area, engages graduate students, faculty, staff, and community volunteers in learning and service, addressing local needs for food security and resilience, especially among traditionally underserved and marginalized community members. This session will communicate how the collaboration builds local capacity to grow food and address climate change by increasing access to healthy food and healthy environments.
Northeast Organic Farming Association of NH (NOFA-NH) Winter Conference
February 8 at Kearsarge Regional High School
