The Prince's Speech on the Future of Food

by

The Prince's Speech on the Future of Food Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On May 4, 2011, Prince Charles gave the keynote speech at the Future of Food conference at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Rodales special commemorative edition of that speech has been enhanced with an all-new foreword by Wendell Berry and afterword by Will Allen and Eric Schlosser.

Sustainability, specifically in global food systems, is an issue the Prince has championed for decades. His speech addresses such issues as the growing global food shortage and wasteful contemporary agricultural practices that, over time, will deplete our soil, harm the workers who toil in the fields, and have cataclysmic impact on the global economy. In their stead he advocates organic farming and agricultural systems that are environmentally and economically resilient — systems, for the well being of future generations, must be adopted today.

Synopsis:

The Prince's Speech is a stirring, thought-provoking, and ultimately hopeful call to action from one of the world's leading proponents of sustainable farming practices, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
