- Planet Erstwild - 20091206 -- Jim Braun & Sarah Carlson

A special interview with Illinois food, farms, and jobs coordinator Jim Braun and filmmaker Sarah Carlson.

James Moore
spoke with the two as they were in town to film Jim Ikerd, Lonnie Gamble and others. Sarah's film GROW is nearing completion. Jim, who was oruiginally an Iowa farmer, has been instrumental in creating legislation and a jobs plan for the whole state of Illinois.

Jim and the Illinois State Legislature are doing amazing things in terms of food, farming, and jobs on a statewide level that should be a model for the wonderful work Fairfield has been doing on a city-wide level. If you care about food, progressive food policy and getting things done, tune in to see what's happening right next door in the Land of Lincoln.
