Edible Radio host and publisher of Edible Santa Fe, Kate Manchester, talks to Mark Winne.
Mark Winne is a co-founder of a number of food and agriculture policy groups including the City of Hartford Food Policy Commission, the Connecticut Food Policy Council, End Hunger Connecticut!, and the National Community Food Security Coalition. He was an organizer and chairman of the Working Lands Alliance, a statewide coalition working to preserve Connecticut’s farmland, and is a founder of the Connecticut Farmland Trust.
Mark Winne’s latest book is Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin Mama’s – and it’s an unflinching look at our vast and broken food system – everything from CAFO’s (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) to the industrial agriculture machine that produces everything from lettuce and broccoli to commodity corn and soy – alongside an in depth look and the good news at what’s happening in the sustainable food movement.
Mark blogs regularly at www.markwinne.com and is a regular contributor www.civileats.org and www.foodforthought.net. He is the author of Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty (Beacon Press 2008).
