In this far-ranging, acutely insightful overview, Michael Pollan depicts the profound societal transformation underway in how we eat and grow our food. It’s a “Sunfood” agenda that takes our food system off its petrochemical dependency and unhealthy “food-like substances.” It brings farming back to local communities with human-scale agriculture. He identifies the food system as the single most important determinant of public health and the health-care crisis. This is a genuine food revolution, he observes, and it’s growing much bigger and faster than you may think. Introduction by Kenny Ausubel, CEO and Co-Founder of Bioneers.

This speech was given at the 2009 National Bioneers Conference.
