Understanding the Agricultural Landscape

In this episode Crop To Cuisine explores several areas that are helping us understand and make decisions about the agricultural landscape. Adam Avery tells us about their team bike ride from Boulder to Durango, and how breweries are doing more than making great beer within their communities. Bill Meyer from the USDA Statistics Service explains the first organic agriculture census. Cindy Torres of the Boulder County Food & Agricultural Policy Council helps us understand the GMO v. Non GMO argument. And Michelle DaPra shares the USDA's efforts to better understand local food systems.

For more information about our guests, additional resources on local food and agriculture, or some great recipes, visit www.croptocuisine.org. You can also "Friend us on Facebook". I'd like to know how you experience your food.
