  • We, as a civilization, are two generations into bad nutrition. We can expect degenerative disease to increase, if we don't improve the quality of nutrition.

Notice something unusual about our speakers?

Winona LaDuke, the 1996 and 2000 Vice Presidential candidate from the Green Party- running mate with Ralph Nader.

 Joel Salatin, lifelong Libertarian and Lunatic farmer. 

Craig Hickman, State Senator from Maine, a Democrat- co-author of the Maine Food Sovereignty Act.

John Klar, a former Republican candidate for Governor of Vermont and local food advocate.

Why did we choose to do this? 

All of these people are incredible advocates for the local food movement. They all agree we are better off when local and regional food systems thrive.

The local food movement is more important than politics.  It is about health. It is about strength. It is about a bond stronger than any political affiliation.
