System Change Not Climate Change talks with Vermont-based author, educator, and grassroots activist Grace Gershuny about her vision for transforming the U.S. food system into one that is regenerative, just, and accessible to all, stressing the ties between the organic food and other movements, including Black Lives Matter, LGBTQIA+ rights, water sovereignty, and, of course, climate.

Gershuny has written critical books on the subject: Organic Revolutionary: A Memoir of the Movement for Real Food, Planetary Healing, and Human Liberation; Start with the Soil; The Rodale Book of Composting; and The Soul of Soil. She teaches and serves on the board of directors of the Institute for Social Ecology and has taught at several Vermont colleges.
