Food HubJanuary 28, 2014 – Segment 4

We’re talking food and farming, in our newest edition of Sound Bites! February 1 is St. Brigid’s Day – did you know she is the patron saint of cattle? After a brief commentary on this curious saint, we talk about creating a Delmarva Food Hub, with Cleo Braver, owner of Cottingham Farm in Easton, Maryland.

Then, we ask the question: Do GMOs matter? You will hear from: Tom PhilpottMother Jones Food and Agriculture correspondent; and Nathanael Johnson, food writer for Grist.

We close out the show with a look at a project designed to help municipalities on Maryland’s Eastern Shore significantly reduce their energy expenditures, called the ShorePower Project. Here to talk with us about this exciting new initiative is Briggs Cunningham, Energy Programs Manager at the Center For Environment & Society at Washington College.
