This resource is a 6-minute video consisting primarily of an interview with a father and son pair of Spanish almond farmers (in Spanish with English subtitles). They discuss the conventional farming methods used by the father and the ecological and restorative farming methods the son learned at university. The son was eventually able to convince the father to adopt the more sustainable methods. This is an inspirational video showing the power of multi-generational agriculture. This resource is recommended for teaching.
