Michael Pollan, author of the Omnivore's Dilemma, encourages us to put our faith in relationship rather than technology and regulation. Pollan is perhaps the foremost critic of the American and global food system and advocate for transforming that system.
"Local food economies are our best hope for checking the drift toward the total global economy. And with food is where these economies begin. A revolt is underway across this country -- a revolt of the small producers and consumers. And some of the most important politics today as I said, are happening at farmers markets."
This speech was presented at the 2006 National Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, CA and is part of the Ecological Food and Farming Collection, Vol. 1.
Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.
