The Global Food Crisis

In this episode Crop To Cuisine speaks with Joel K. Bourne Jr. author of National Geographic Magazine's June cover story, The End of Plenty - The Global Food Crisis. We discuss the relationship between food, agriculture, population growth, and the consequences of ignoring it all. We are also joined by Chef Ann Cooper. Chef Cooper spent years redesigning the Berkley, CA school food system. She now makes her presence known in Boulder, Colorado, where she is working with others to overhaul the system - replacing processed foods with fresh and healthy ones. And lastly, we get tips on how to transform a garden into a community building experience from CSU Extension agent, Carol O'Meara.

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.

You can download the audio for this episode on Crop to Cuisine.
