This week we talk to Linnea Gabbard, a vet tech from Arkansas who manages to live off grid with her vetrinarian husband. Together they’ve been able to build up their personal stores and derive essentially all of their electricity from solar arrays. And as Linnea said, once you get your personal life cleaned up, you move onto other aspects of your life, and for her, that means greening up their vet clinic. They are constantly on the lookout to make their practice greener, and have started building a new clinic that will run on solar.

Vegetarians and vegans often believe their diets are healthier for the environment, and help promote animal rights. This isn’t always the case. Often these diets consist of highly processed products from the industrial agricultural complex that only help promote the monoculture thousands of acres.

We talked about how Kate came to make this transition, regenerative farming pracatices, and what makes Western Daughters so unique.
