Description

The agricultural landscape in the United States appears bleak: gluttonous agri-corporations extract fertility from the soil and labor from workers. Animals are treated as machines for converting feed to meat, and monoculture dominates farmlands. Concentration of power among a handful of companies has driven much of this decay, but some farmers and activists have maintained alternative food regimes, fighting for environmental justice and food sovereignty. This panel will feature investigative journalist Tom Philpott discussing his new book, Perilous Bounty: The Looming Collapse of American Farming and How We can Prevent It.
