Learn how this sacred “tree of life” and other lost crops around the world, growing in abundance and undervalued, are essential to our eco-system.
Discover how an ideal business model is not only helping to preserve biodiversity and in turn our planet, but providing essential economic value to indigenous communities, as well.
OMG, what a fun podcast (of course I am impartial because its me “Baobab Barb” here.) Thank you for sharing the KAIBAE journey and spending time with Dr. Luc! I loved the mix of both of your giggles and the serious tones too. As I am listening, Luc and our partner Tom Cole have just begun their long long journey home from 10 days spent in Africa in 100+ degree temps with the communities. I am so excited to send your podcast to their attention. Just yesterday, Tom posted his Community Impact Study. This is a very important piece to what we do, always asking ourselves, “Are we truly doing good work, are we able to make a measurable impact, are we making a difference?’ I will forward that study to you. Please feel free to share that on At The Epicenter and it will also be available on @gokaibae sm & the gokaibae.com website. Thank you again for your support and passion for plants, people and KAIBAE! In gratitude, Barb Maes
