Salinas Underground

We tell the story of the city we grew up with by interviewing the people that make it what it is: the business people, the musicians, the scholars, anyone that adds to the culture of Salinas.

In this episode our guests are George and Rene from MILPA. They are a group from Salinas that is cultivating the next crop of leaders. Milpa is a Mesoamerican system of farming that uses complementary plants to reduce the need for fertilizers and pesticides. Taking inspiration from that system, MILPA is taking a multi-faceted approach to teaching the younger generation and creating leaders that understand the complex problems of our modern world.
