There is exciting news on the local-sustainable food front! I have joined Natural Awakenings Magazine, Fairfield County, as food editor. Each month, a dedicated Fairfield Green Food Guide-branded section will feature articles, resource guides, news briefs and business profiles that inspire and empower readers to eat locally and sustainably.
The anti-GMO movement is strong and determined to retake control of the global food system and two films explain the issues at hand. ‘Seeds of Freedom’ charts the story of seed from diversity-rich farming systems to its transformation into a monopolized commodity. ‘Genetic Roulette’ exposes never-seen-before-evidence that points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to disease in people, pets, livestock, and lab animals eating genetically modified soybeans and corn.
Westport Farmers’ Market shoppers looking for ways to eat more local and sustainable food are invited to visit me at the Education Booth this Thursday from 10-2. Bring your questions and concerns so we can chat about local/sustainable food – including Genetically Modified food, sustainable seafood, CSAs, organic farm stands, farm-to-table restaurants, seasonal cooking and local food events.
