Few issues are more global than food, but as Urban Agriculturalist Will Allen notes, "Food is really at the very core of our being . . . it's something that puts everybody at an equal level." Food production and consumption are affected by climate change, technology, and international economic and political trends, and yet they are personal and, in some ways, very local. Practitioners Laurell Sims and Seneca Kern join us from two urban agricultural organizations that offer innovative local solutions to these issues we face every day.
