On our newest episode of SoundBites, our series about our food and our world, we begin with a follow-up to previous episodes about the proposed Fairfield Incinerator in Curtis Bay. The permit for the project was ruled expired this month by the Maryland Department of the Environment. With: James Strong, Sub-District Director for United Steelworkers District 8; and Leah Kelly, attorney with the Environmental Integrity Project.
Then, we talk with Jeremy Cox, Business Reporter from Delmarva Now, about Maryland Department of Agriculture’s announcement earlier this month that, based on statewide soil test information, some 82% of farm fields will not be impacted by new environmental regulations potentially limiting phosphorus application or the use of animal manure as a fertilizer.
We close out the show with food educator and documentary producer Jennifer Crisp. Crisp joins us to talk about new projects focusing on food and education. She produced Giobbi, a documentary about a chef who finally gets to meet her 89 year old mentor: Artist, chef, cookbook author, gardener and winemaker Edward Giobbi. Crisp also teaches a seed-to-table program in Baltimore City Public Schools.
