Anna Lappé | “Island Earth: Chemicals, Climate, and the Future of Eating”

March 12, 2019

In this engaging talk, author and activist Anna Lappé takes us down history lane, from the origins of our chemically dependent, petroleum-addicted agricultural system to the corporate conglomerates who dominate that system today. Lappé traces the many ripples of a way of farming that fights against nature and how communities around the country—and the world—are tapping natural wisdom to build abundant, just, diverse food systems and push back against corporate control. From the islands of Hawaii to the hillsides of Italy to the mountains of Himalayas, there is a thriving way of feeding ourselves that protects people and planet—Lappé helps to shine a light on these stories and how we can be a part of this new story emerging.
