Developing Sustainable Foodsheds: The Next Steps in Eating Local
Panel Discussion with members of Roots of Change, moderated by Michael Dimock, President, Roots of Change

Global climate change, competition for use of cropland, population growth, and aging farmers all raise serious questions about our nation’s ability to feed itself over time. Moreover, the relationship between health and diet makes it essential that we focus on access to healthful, nutritious, and fresh food. The panel, resulting from the Developing Sustainable Foodsheds Conference in July 2009, will discuss issues related to the development of foodsheds in the United States.
