Wildoak Living Mon Aug 5 at 9am: RAISING DOUGH & HARVESTING JUSTICE - Part 7 of CHANGING CLIMATE, CHANGING WORLD
Tune in to WILDOAK LIVING, the radio program about living sustainably and building community in Mendocino County and beyond.
On Monday, August 5 at 9:00 AM Pacific Time, Part 7 of our series Changing Climate - Changing World:
RAISING DOUGH & HARVESTING JUSTICE
This program continues our series about how our changing climate is changing the world we live in, locally and globally. Previous programs in this series made the connection between climate change and the need for food diversity and for strengthening of local food economies. In part Part 7 of Changing Climate, Changing World, we take a look at financing socially responsible food businesses and the concept of food sovereignty.
In the first half of the program, I talk with Elisabeth Ü, author of Raising Dough: The Complete Guide to Financing a Socially Responsible Food Businesses. Food-based businesses can solve social and environmental problems — yet the majority of food entrepreneurs say lack of access to capital prevents them from launching or growing their ventures. Raising Dough came about as a result of the author's frustration that no good resource existed that outlined the capital options available for food businesses — including pros, cons, criteria, and sources.
In the second half of the program, I talk with Beverly Bell, author of Harvesting Justice: Transforming Food, Land and Agricultural Systems in the Americas. The book is the result of five years of interviews and on-site research from throughout the hemisphere, describing strategies to win food sovereignty. It draws from more than 100 successes, grassroots alternatives, and models.
The series Changing Climate, Changing World on Wildoak Living is part of my contribution to education about climate change. The idea for this series was born during an interview I did with Dr. Peter Joseph in early 2012. He inspired me to check out the The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore. In August of 2012, I was trained by Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project to educate about climate change and became one of the more than 4000 volunteer climate leaders.
