February 2, 2012 – Hour 2

This week on the show, we continue our look at the history of agriculture. First, Mike Lewis, Director of Environmental Studies and professor of history at Salisbury University, joins us to talk about the major transformations that brought Delmarva agriculture from colonial farming to today’s chicken farms and large feed operations. Then don’t miss our conversation with Wes Jackson, founder and current president of The Land Institute, who shares his vision for an agriculture system that can feed the world and minimize environmental damage.
