weeding, fertilizing, raising, picking, harvesting, processing,
cooking, baking, making, serving, buying, selling, distributing,
transporting, composting, organizing around, lobbying about, writing
about, thinking about, talking about, playing with, and eating food!" Her first book, Recipe for America: Why Our Food System is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It will be published on July 1. She is a Commonweal Institute fellow & member of the Organic Consumers Association policy advisory board.

Francis Thicke owns the organically-certified Radiance Dairy in Fairfield. He'll join us in the studio to discuss the recent New York Times article spotlighting the plight of organic dairy farmers. Francis grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota. He earned a Ph.D. in Agronomy/Soil Fertility at the University of Illinois. In 1992, he returned to his farming roots and we are all thankful for that! He is currently seeking the office of Iowa Agriculture Secretary.
