I’m heading to Dayton, Ohio in February to share keynote responsibilities with Eric Holt-Giménez, long time executive director of Food First – an organization that has challenged my thinking and inspired some of my best work over the years – at the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association‘s annual conference.
Eric and I will explore the barriers and opportunities for transforming the food system to restore the damage done by global industrialism and produce well-being for all people and the planet. This transformation is already on the ground and growing throughout the U.S. and beyond, thanks to sustainable farmers (and those that support them) who have been busy over the last 40 years innovating our resilient food future.
My thanks to Public News Service for this shout out about my work and my keynote at the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association Annual Conference next month!
