Last May the Prince of Wales gave the keynote speech at the Future of Food conference on the Georgetown University campus. Many prominent food activists and environmentalists— Laurie David, Eric Schlosser, Marian Nestle—heard the speech......and believed it needed to be accessible to a larger audience. Now Rodale Books and GRACE Communications Foundation, with the help of Laurie David, have produced a printed publication of the speech, available with a new foreword by Wendell Berry and an afterword by Will Allen and Eric Schlosser. More about the book/speech:
Although the Prince seemed an unlikely messenger, he drew upon his nearly 30 years of organic farming experience and sustainable food advocacy, artfully revealing the true costs of industrial agriculture -- from soil degradation to water contamination -- while raising hope for a future that is more ecologically viable.
