Andrew Kimbrell – Organic & Beyond: Paradigm for a New Food Future
One of the most penetrating critics of technological abuses, this leading lawyer-activist for local and sustainable food takes on the destructive and toxic system of industrial agriculture. Author of the classic book Fatal Harvest, he shows how reconnecting with the land, farmers and our food can heal the distortions born from our separation from the Earth and psychological distance from each other. He warns us to be alert to the manipulations of corporate food giants who seek to take over the organics movement and debase organic standards with genetically modified foods and other poorly conceived technologies.
This speech was given at the 2002 Bioneers National Conference.
