Michael Pollan on the Permaculture Topic of Industrial Agriculture, GMO’s, and Cooking Food You Grow

We recently found this great podcast by Michael Pollan, originally broadcast on Permaculture Voices (to support the work Permaculture Voices is doing, see how you can here).

You will hear Michael’s take on what it will take to ultimately get GMOs labeled in the US, and what affect will that labeling have. He talks how it fits into permaculture, and about the concept of rewarding farmers for embracing sustainable practices, as well as what it will take to get changes made in agriculture from the grassroots, corporate and government level.

He also talks about the importance of growing cooking your own food and the trickle down effects. If you are growing and cooking your own food then you are supporting permaculture practices and ethics, and have the ability to shop from local farmers, farmers markets, and CSAs. Fast food supports industrial agriculture.

Podcast runs about 40 minutes, so take a listen while you are working out or driving to work, or just carve out a few minutes today. It is very enlightening and Michael positions it all so well, it is a great listen.
