28th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures

Anna Lappé, Dan Barber and Sally Fallon Morell

At the 28th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures, Sally Fallon spoke to the importance of returning to organic farming, pasture-fed livestock and whole traditional foods, properly prepared, if Americans are to regain their health and vitality, as well as the benefits of an economy based on small scale organic production and food processing that returns added value to the independent farmer, rather than to large-scale food processing conglomerates.

Dan  Barber discussed the issues of pleasure, taste and regional bounty and how these imperatives are threatened. Anne Lappé called on the audience to not only to consider changing our own consumption behavior but also to go a step further and question larger systemic issues such as continued government subsidies for agribusinesses.
