Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America

0

The battle for economic justice and a sustainable planet isn’t just the domain of urban and suburban Americans. Farmers and ranchers are heeding the call to explore new ways of farming, removing pesticides and herbicides, fighting GMOs, and creating vibrant rural economies. They are producing healthy food and developing new outlets for their crops. Their efforts are courageous and they are making inroads despite the influence of multi-national corporate agricultural firms, a compliant government, industrial farming, and consolidated control of retail outlets. Listen to author Liz Carlisle talk about her new book “Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America” in which Montana farmers took matters into their own hands, avoided monocrops, replenished their soil, conserved water, refused chemicals, and made it work. They banded together, shared information,developed ideas, and prospered. They are leading the way in a food revolution that will affect us all.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
