What You Eat is What They Will Grow: Real Dirt with Harry Stoddart
Listen to this interview with Harry Stoddart, author, consultant, adviser, and philosopher. Stoddart has developed a farming system that he believes is a starting point for true sustainable agriculture. Stoddart’s book, Real Dirt, An Ex-Industrial Farmers Guide to Sustainable Eating tackles the major food industry problems and economic issues surrounding sustainable farming. Stoddart is an ex-industrial farmer who states:
“You name the sin that modern agriculture is accused of and I have not only committed it but also defended it.”
This book focuses largely on how we as eaters have a greater impact on agriculture than any legislation. He explains how our food choices today will have a much greater effect in changing our food system. He educates us as eaters about how we can individually participate in and demand sustainable agriculture.
