UC Advisor Emeritus Dan Desmond (he was also a Food and Society Policy Fellow, Class IV) and I co-authored an op-ed that appeared last Sunday (May 4th) in the Ventura County Star. Since then, it's been referenced in a few blogs. Here's the link, and I hope you'll read it. Gardening and the food system are big news these days, and there is certainly a political aspect to that.
I recently returned from the Kellogg Food and Society Conference in Arizona. There, I met a number of incredible people who are doing important work towards a more sustainable food system. I'll be writing about them in the weeks ahead.
Several of those who made the greatest impression upon me were bloggers dedicated to their message and their craft. They've inspired me to commit to blogging at least 2-3 times a week. Stay posted.
