Food Chain Radio: From Their Farm to Our Fork


The headline read, “Long Road from Farm to Fork Worsens Outbreaks,” and the story told of how distance exacerbated the recent cantaloupe contamination that killed some and sickened many.  And so we ask…

Can we shorten the distance between farm and fork?

This Saturday at 9am Pacific, the Food Chain Radio show with Michael Olson hosts Andrew Monbouquette and Dan Susman, producers of the movie “Growing Cities,” for a conversation about growing food in or near the city, for the city. (Food Chain Radio #746)

Topics include why our food now travels so far from where it is grown to where we eat it; how some have begun to grow commercial food crops in or near the city; and what adventures one might have when searching America for metropolitan farms.
