DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -With Earth Day coming up this weekend, PSL is happy to bring back Farmer Lee Jones., famous for overalls and a bow tie, to talk about the observation and how it relates to farming and all things ag-related.

The nationally-known veggie expert currently grows more than 600 varieties of vegetables, microgreens, and herbs for the world’s top chefs, hotels, and restaurants. His passion is Farm-fresh vegetables for a healthier you.

Topics discussed include:

  • Regenerative farming is a technique that aims to put nutrients back into the soil, and therefore into our bodies, by increasing the organic matter in the soil used to grow vegetables.
  • Knowing where your food comes from: buying local supports the community’s economy and reduces your carbon footprint
  • How do you pick produce at a farmers market: buy seasonally, don’t buy bruised or damaged produce, and choose vibrant color
