The Future of Food for a Crowded Planet:
with Sarah Elton
Lorraine Johnson
and Barry Estabrook

Hosted by The CBC’s Bob Carty
"[Lorraine Johnson's] thought-provoking, hopeful book explores our relationship with food and how even the smallest acts of gardening...can bring us closer to bridging the gap between the food we eat and how and where it's grown. Never preachy or guilt-inducing, Johnson offers a well-researched look at the whys and wherefores of how we have become disconnected from our food.
