About the Show

Today on the show, we're getting out of the city a bit, and talking about food: How we grow it and what we make out of it.  

First, the Slow Food movement is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating that emphasizes foods that are healthy for you and the planet.  It promotes environmentally and socially responsible eating.  Josh 
Viertel is the first president of the organization Slow Food USA and he joined us to talk about the story behind the food you eat.

And we'll also talk to Peter Nelson about growing 
opportunities to turn farm products into fuel and other materials connecting the farm to the city through bio technology.  Pete has been involved in many  links in the food chain from farmer to investor.  He's now is partner with BioDimensions and he'll tell us about a promising aspect of America's farm economy.
