Grantee News From The Lexicon of Sustainability:
The New Face of Food and Farming in America
Our current way of producing food isn’t healthy for us or our planet. Paying closer attention to how we eat, what food we buy, and where we make these purchases are important first attempts in creating a better food system. LOCAL: The New Face of Food and Farming in America discusses the steps we can take toward sustainable living by explaining the basic terms and principles of this movement. Douglas Gayeton—a cofounder of the Lexicon of Sustainability and Project Localize—has traveled the country, interviewing and photographing farmers, fishermen, dairy producers, and educators to better understand American food and farming today. The stories of their groundbreaking work, along with Gayeton’s stunning collage like photography, are inspirational in their advocacy for change. LOCAL not only demystifies today’s food-making processes and vocabulary, but can also help everyone make changes in their lives that will lead to healthier, safer, and more sustainable food production for generations to come.
