2017 – The Health Care Crisis (How the food system itself impacts health)

How the food system itself impacts health

Host Jon Steinman recently traveled to Vancouver Island to document two new and innovative projects being undertaken there. Both are looking to ensure the sustainability of local farming on an Island that sees 90% of its food being imported from the mainland.

On this broadcast, we listen in on segments from a presentation by British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture’s Brent Warner. Brent was invited to speak at an event hosted by British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture & Lands (Victoria, BC) – Brent is a horticulturalist who has worked with the Ministry since 1980. Brent is the Secretary of the North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association. He authored “Marketing on the Edge” – a guide for farmers/producers to assist in diversification and marketing of their products directly to the public.
