Ecoation officially launched their new podcast - Voice of the Grower! The Introduction (Ep. 0) and first full length episode featuring Mucci Farms are currently out on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and at ecoation.com.
If you ask any person you pass on the street, who is Gordon Ramsey? or Jamie Oliver? 9 out of 10 can identify them as well-known celebrity chefs. But if you ask the same person if they can name two farm houses or growers, odds are they wouldn’t be able to. Ecoation wants to change this! Introducing Voice of the Grower, ecoation’s new podcast platform that aims to shine a spotlight on the hardworking people in the greenhouse industry. This is an open call to those who tackle the challenge of indoor growing, navigate the ever-changing AgTech landscape, and are shaping the future of food. If you are a grower or you know a grower who has a story to share, we would love to hear from you. Ecoation wants to celebrate you and share your story with the world.
In every episode, you can look forward to a new grower or ag expert sharing their history, story, perspective, aspirations, and challenges in the industry. Follow along on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or at ecoation.com/podcast. For all inquiries and guest referrals, please reach out to Voice of the Grower host, Cameron Lust, email@example.com.
“I started to look at the media around chefs and how we celebrate chefs in our society with books and movies and the picture that we have of farmers is this old man with a pitcher and overalls standing next to his sad wife, and this is far from the reality of the farm and farmer I know. So I thought, that needs to change," said Dr. Saber Miresmailli, ecoation co-founder and CEO [EP. 0]
"I've known many growers throughout my life and have a deep respect for what they do. To me, the Voice of the Grower podcast is an opportunity to hear the stories and history behind growers, ag experts and entrepreneurs. They take big risks and have great insight and stories to share." - Cameron Lust, Voice of the Grower Host and ecoation Marketing Coordinator.
