Food, Farms, Sustainability

Mar 19, 2012

More people are buying local food, choosing more sustainably-produced food, and growing their own.

This trend is the topic of The Fifth Annual Global Environmental Sustainability Symposium at CCSU.

Today we talk to some of the panelists -- Bill Duesing - head of the Connecticut Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association, which is involved in a lawsuit against Monsanto and is pushing for “Genetically Modified” labeling in Connecticut.

And Emily Brooks, author of Connecticut Farmer and Feast and How Marketing Influences Sustainable Decisions.

And we want to hear from you. Do you buy local? How do you make decisions about the products you buy?
