Founded in 2009 and offering training programs, matching services, positions and land for aspiring farmers, reliable leaders for existing farm and food operations, Farmer Veteran Coalition was founded in 2009. In mid-August 2014, we had the honor and pleasure to speak with Mr. Michael O’Gorman, Executive Director of FARMER VETERAN COALITION. During this initial conversation I asked about challenges the organization faced in the early year’s and he told me simply, it was in finding any veterans.

FVC Michael O’Gorman: “I had this idea, and everyone said, “Oh what a wonderful idea.” And I said, “Yeah, but I don’t know any veterans that are interested in farming. Do you?” I remember one day hearing, “Oh such, and such a farmer said somebody came to do some custom harvest at their farm, and he was a veteran of the Iraq War.” I said, “Gosh, help me find them, help me find them.”

The Microbial Loop

Video from National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research:

The microbial loop refers to the small microscopic organisms in the ocean – viruses, bacteria, the small phytoplankton and microzooplankton – and the relationships between them.

NIWA biological oceanographer Dr Julie Hall explains how the microbial loop forms the bottom of marine food webs and involves rapid cycling of both nutrients and carbon.

Dominance of the microbial loop in the upper waters of the ocean leads to less carbon sequestration (sinking of carbon to the deep ocean).
