Re-establishing our personal relationship with food and ending our role as commodity “consumers” is part of a healing, regenerative process. It’s a part of our natural evolution, according to Michael Brownlee, author of The Local Food Revolution: How Humanity Will Feed Itself in Uncertain Times. In this conclusion of a two-part conversation, Brownlee shares why food is sacred, and what is needed to accelerate relocalization of our food supply. He also explains what we’ve lost in the commoditization of food, and what we can gain as we relocalize. Since 2005, Michael Brownlee and Lynette Marie Hanthorn have shepherded grassroots relocalization efforts in Boulder, Colorado. Their efforts have included the founding of Boulder Valley Relocalization, Boulder County Going Local, Transition Boulder County, Transition Colorado, Local Food Shift Group, and – most recently Local Food Catalysts. The pair are producing and co-hosting the first national Local Food Summit for ten days this summer. For more information, visit http://www.conversationearth.org
