Mark Winne Invites You to a Conversation About Transforming the Food System

Santa Fe author and food activist Mark Winne invites you to join him in a conversation about his book Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart-Cookin' Mamas: Fighting Back in an Age of Industrial Agriculture on Thursday, February 23, at Bookworks bookstore, 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Albuquerque, at 7:00 p.m.    Here is a part of the promo for the event, followed by a video from Mark's Web site.
Agribusiness giants don't want you to know-or care-if the food you eat is genetically modified, factory farmed, or grown with toxic chemicals. But the rapidly growing alternative food movement is resisting these practices and helping people reclaim their connections to their food. A forty-year veteran of this movement, Mark Winne introduces us to innovative "local doers" defying industrial agribusiness and leading the charge to bring nutritious, sustainable, and affordable food to all.

Mark, a long-time friend of Bread for the World, also serves as Food Policy Council Program Director for the Community Food Security Coalition
