Traditional farming guides sustainable food production

Thelonoius Cook’s farm in eastern Virginia carries on traditions from Africa. He uses sustainable farming practices he learned while working in Tanzania and Mozambique, techniques like using cover crops to restore the soil and planting certain crops to detract pests. His farm uses only non-toxic methods to grow food, avoiding all fertilizers and pesticides.

“Doing regenerative type practices also allows you to work yourself out of a job because the soil is starting to improve,” Cook said. “So it eventually clicks and it starts to respond, and then your plants start to respond, and then you start to get better tasting food.”
