Conversations in the Field: Episode 1

Greetings from the EIOLT Education Outreach Committee! We have been busy creating some new online learning opportunities just for you. This is the launch of our series, “Conversations In The Field”. We will be bringing you experts in a variety of fields who will discuss environmental and conservation topics.

Our first episode features Harleston Towles, a local farmer here on Edisto Island. Many of you requested this field trip, which we have had to postpone due to COVID-19. So instead we are taking you virtually to the field to see his farming operation and the beginnings of your Twenty Bag! Harleston incorporates sustainable and organic farming practices into his farm, Rooting Down Farms. These practices allow him to grow delicious, fresh local vegetables without harming the local environment, over-taxing the soil, or sacrificing the quality of the produce.
