If you haven't seen this article yet, hit print, run to the printer and start reading. You know I'm a big fan of sustainable food and agriculture mastermind, Michael Pollan, (see August's posting). Well, he's back in the media this week with an incredibly interesting, lengthy letter in the NY Times Magazine 's food issue this past weekend--one of the many articles I mentioned in Monday's post. "Farmer in Chief" speaks directly to the next president-elect, urging him to make our food industry and agricultural system an urgent priority. Pollan explains how food policy directly impacts national security, our move towards greener energy sources, the state of the economy and our national health care system. He makes a sensible case for a serious overhaul. Let's just hope the next administration actually listens.
Go and get reading!!!
