Abstract:

Although more than 12,000 organic farms operate in the United States, increasing demand for organically grown food requires substantial imports from abroad. This program delves into the world of sustainable, eco-friendly agriculture; it also highlights advances that should eventually enable all Americans to "act locally" when they shop for organic food. George Siemon, founder and CEO of Organic Valley, talks about the inner workings of his cooperative organization, while green food producers Anthony Rodale, Gary Hirshberg, and Gary Erickson explain the challenges and rewards of their successful operations. In another segment, renowned activist Vandana Shiva expounds on the social, environmental, and health-related consequences of traditional corporate farming.
