Sustainable Dish Podcast

After several years as a vegetarian, Kate Kavanaugh realized her health was declining, and determined meat might be the missing element. Now, Kate is a butcher, farmer, and holistic nutritionist. She also runs Ground Work Collective, a farm-finding search engine to help you connect to local farmers. 

Kate is on the podcast today with my co-host James Connolly to share her transformation from overmedicated child to a passionate entrepreneur. This is the first episode in this two-part interview with Kate.
