I am speaking at the Con Edison Science, Technology, Energy, Environment, and Math (STEEM) Distinguished Lecturer series on “Food Politics 2020: Food Industry Influence on Nutrition Research and Practice.” It’s from 12:15-1:30 pm at the Science Building, C-201. Details are here.
Weekend reading: Liz Carlisle’s Lentil Underground
Liz Carlisle. Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America. Gotham Books, 2015.
I did a blurb for this one:
What does it take to farm sustainably—and make a living? Liz Carlisle tells the engrossing story of the “audacity rich, but capital poor” Montana farmers who thought lentils were the answer and stuck with them until proved right. Anyone who dreams of starting a farm or wants to know how organic farmers can overcome the obstacles they face will be inspired by this book.
