An Evening with
Michael Pollan The Sun Food Agenda
For the past 20 years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. He is the author, most recently, of the best seller Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual and In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. By replacing the energy of the sun with energy from fossil fuels, industrial agriculture has made food impressively cheap and abundant. But this achievement has come at a cost. Today, our food system is implicated in three of the most critical problems facing our society: the energy crisis, the climate crisis, and the health care crisis. None of these problems can be addressed without reforming the way America eats. In this inspiring multimedia presentation, Pollan connects the dots between food and health (personal as well as environmental), and introduces us to some of the visionaries who are “resolarizing” the food system. The Sun Food Agenda – involving change at the level of the farm, the marketplace and the culture – promises to improve our health, cut our dependence on fossil fuel, and help solve the climate crisis.
