The Future of Food and Farming

February 7, 2013 – Segment 3

On Sound Bites this week, we start by welcoming back Wenonah Hauter. She is the author of Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America, and the Executive Director of Food and Water Watch. Over the next few weeks, we will share insight from Wenonah on the issues she covers in her book.

Then, we check back in on a case we’ve covered on this program many times before, that of the Brickyard Educational Farm in Montgomery County that is still fighting for the rights to land the farm has used for decades. Sophia Maravell, Brickyard’s Education Director, and Carissa Lovelace, Campaign Director of Save This Soil, join us for that update of the Maravell family’s struggle to stay on the land.
We conclude this week on Sound Bites with a feature on pesticides and our children’s health with Dr. Lorne Garretson, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics at Emory University.
