Gary Paul Nabhan, author and father of the local food movement, joins host Jenna Liut to talk about his new book, “Food from the Radical Center: Healing our Communities and our Land,” which contains a collection of stories that illustrate what good can happen when people organize and work together to restore land in order to produce healthy foods. They discuss just how divided our nation is today, various community-based collaborative restoration strategies, and the unprecedented impacts they have had in restoring North America’s food biodiversity and fostering a sense of empathy for our neighbors.
