An Interview with Mark Winne, Author of "Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners and Smart-Cooking Mamas"
Sat. 2/12 at noon: Host Carol Boss presents the second interview in Revolutionary Soup, a series of conversations about food on Women's Focus. This week, New Mexico author and food activist Mark Winne talks about his new book.
In the second interview in Revolutionary Soup, Mark Winne talks about his new book, where he asks readers and fellow New Mexicans to take a stand and play a direct role in food democracy by becoming informed and empowered eaters, buyers and food producers. He takes on the universal struggle between human freedom and authority in its relationship to food and has numerous stories to tell how people are reclaiming their connection to their food, health, land, and government - from urban gardening heroes in Cleveland and feisty farmers in New England to lower income mothers in Texas.
