An Open Letter to the Farmer in Chief
Highly recommended: “Dear Mr. Next President,” an excellent review of the need to transition to local and organic agriculture, written by Michael Pollan, which appeared in the Oct. 12, 2008 issue of the New York Times Magazine.
Pollan’s piece is long but incisive, a well-informed appraisal of climate change and food security challenges. You can find it at:
Editor’s note: Pollan is shown on the cover of this issue of Cooperative Grocer with City Market’s manager Clem Nilan.
