What Is Organic, Sustainable Agriculture With Jennifer Reeve On Monday's Access Utah

We’ve all heard the terms ‘organic’ and ‘sustainable’ agriculture, but what do those descriptions really mean?

Utah Public Radio explores this question with soil scientist Jennifer Reeve. She presents “What is Organic and Sustainable Agriculture, Anyway?” on Monday, July 15th. 

“We’re not just interested in labels one might see in a supermarket’s produce section,” says Reeve, ahead of her science unwrapped presentation. “We want to understand the scientific processes behind organic and sustainable agriculture.”

Originally from England, Dr. Reeve earned a Bachelor of Science in Ecology from the University of Sheffield in 1995. Followed by a MS and PhD in Soil Science from Washington State University in 2003 and 2007. Her research interests include nutrient management and soil health in organic and integrated tree fruit, vegetable, pasture and grain systems.

A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
