Program Topics:
Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat

Cooking with Wild Mushrooms

Grief and the Holidays

Wildoak Living host and producer Johanna “Wildoak” talks with:

  1. Environmental lawyer Nicolette Hahn Niman, about her new book Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production. The manifesto of an environmental lawyer and vegetarian turned cattle rancher. 

  2. Local authors Alison Gardener and Merry Winslow about their new book The Wild Mushroom Cookbook

  3. Dick Lumaghi, grief support coordinator of Hospice Ukiah, about an upcoming workshop about Grief and the Holidays.

About Defending Beef:

The public has long been led to believe that livestock, especially cattle, erode soils, pollute air and water, damage riparian areas, and decimate wildlife populations. In Defending Beef, Hahn Niman argues that cattle are not inherently bad for either the Earth or our own nutritional health. In fact, properly managed livestock play an essential role in maintaining grassland ecosystems by functioning as surrogates for herds of wild ruminants that once covered the globe. Hahn Niman argues that dispersed, grass-fed, small-scale farms can and should become the basis for American food production, replacing the factory farms that harm animals and the environment.

The author—a longtime vegetarian—goes on to dispel popular myths about how eating beef is bad for our bodies. She methodically evaluates health claims made against beef, demonstrating that such claims have proven false. She shows how foods from cattle—milk and meat, particularly when raised entirely on grass—are healthful, extremely nutritious, and an irreplaceable part of the world’s food system.

Grounded in empirical scientific data and with living examples from around the world, Defending Beef builds a comprehensive argument that cattle can help to build carbon-sequestering soils to mitigate climate change, enhance biodiversity, help prevent desertification, and provide invaluable nutrition. While no single book can definitively answer the thorny question of how to feed the Earth’s growing population, Defending Beef makes the case that, whatever the world’s future food system looks like, cattle and beef can and must be part of the solution.

About The Wild Mushroom Cookbook:

Are you a mushroomer?  Wonder what to do with your bounty?  Getting tired of your old recipes?  Two local women, Alison Gardner and Merry Winslow,  with both mushrooming and cooking experience, have written a wild mushroom cookbook. It includes around 300 recipes, including appetizers, pickles, sauces, breads, side dishes, entrees, drinks and desserts.There are recipes for commonly eaten wild mushrooms, like chanterelles, oyster mushroom and porcini, and recipes for rather esoteric wild mushrooms, also. Plus recipes for the cauliflower mushroom, sweetbread mushroom, blewits, man on horseback, candy caps, beefsteak mushroom, milk caps, shrimp russula, variegated russula, cocorra, grisette, matsutake, hawk wing, yellow feet, hedgehogs, shaggy manes, deer mushrooms, volvariellas, and many more. If they are commonly found in our area, and edible, they tried to include them.

About Grief Support for the Holidays:

Dick Lumaghi, the grief support coordinator of Hospice Ukiah, is having a Grief and the Holidays workshop on Friday 11/21 in Ukiah. Many people report how difficult the Holidays are for them when loss is so present to them...or they have a friend who's grieving and they don't know how to be with them at Holiday time. This workshop is going to be a practical "how to" be with one's own and others grief at that challenging time. To learn more about grief and bereavement, listen to these archived interviews with Dick Lumaghi:
