Let's Talk Taste with Sherry, Saving the Earth One Flavor at a Time

As one of the original movers and shakers involved in the Organic Certification in Congress, Rod Morrison understands what the modern day farmer faces when it comes to taking care of their land. His family history traces back to the days before corporate agriculture began to influence and strong arm farmers into toxic land practices. "Back then there wasn't organic farming, it was just called farming."

At one point, I ask Rod what the original intention of the organic certification was, and his answer was quite shocking.

Throughout his farming career, Rod has been able to link arms with some big names in environmental farming. He's been fortunate to work with Wes Jackson botanist and environmentalist with connections to Wendell Barry, who was a key contributor to Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma.

Rod has a powerful perspective on calories as an approach to food economics. When you understand what a calorie really is, you start to recognize how precarious our way of eating truly is.
