This week on Eating Matters, we provide a recap of the Good Festival, a Brooklyn-based conference started by Wen-Jay Ying, Founder and Director of Local Roots NYC.
Wen-Jay joins host Jenna Liut in the studio to discuss the key conference themes of compassion, communication and collaboration – not just hippie ideals but also a prescription for a healthy food system. Tune in to learn how to make choices that celebrate and benefit our local food economy.
Later in the show, Leo Pollock discusses his Rhode Island-based startup, Compost Plant, the first full service composter in the state.
“The awareness around composting is sort of where recycling was 15 or 20 years ago. For some people it made sense, and for some people it’s sort of like: ‘Why do we need to do that?'” [38:40] – Leo Pollock.
