Learn about food politics: Go!

IMG_3452One thing I realized at the Hazon Food Conference is that I have a lot to learn. I’m particularly behind on food and agriculture policy. Thinking about the nuances of legislation on the table on the local and national level kind of makes my head spin. Then there are regional issues that can inform and compliment each other.

So much going on! But I decided to take a breath and start reading. If you’re in the same position, you can try it, too. Take a breath, look at this happy food picture above, and then dive in.

Here are a few (okay, many) links to get you started. Check ’em out, and feel free to suggest more.
