Moments of Meaning: Agriculture’s Importance in Rebuilding Our World – Roy Steiner

April 26, 2022, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Moments of Meaning is a podcast produced by Baha’i Teachings and hosted by Sean Hinton. 

In each episode, Sean speaks to someone whose life has been profoundly affected by the writings of the Baha’i Faith. Each guest shares with Sean their “moment of meaning” — whether it’s a big life choice, a turning point in their career, an inspiration or an insight. They share the passages from the Baha’i writings that were part of this moment, and explain the changes this moment inspired in their lives.

In this episode of Moments of Meaning, Sean Hinton speaks to Roy Steiner. Roy was born in Germany, grew up in Canada, and now heads the global food and agriculture program at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, USA. His love for agriculture started at a young age, when he started a backyard garden on his own, “growing copious amounts of vegetables.”
