grew up in NYC, totally disconnected from the source of her food. In 1984 she cofounded Earthbound Farm (now the largest grower of organic produce in the US) in her backyard garden. She has authored three cookbooks that share her passion for delicious food and a healthy planet.
Food is at the core of our lives. Feeding ourselves and our families is a basic daily need, and shopping, cooking, and eating takes up much of our time and energy. What we eat and how we feel about food has been shaped by our personal history and culture, and these patterns are often habitual and unexplored. It is easy to take the blessing of a full belly for granted, and ignore the impact of our food choices on our health, communities, and the planet.
