Food and Farming

As you may already know, I'm working on a graduate degree in nutrition. Part of that includes learning about food systems and food policies. Where does our food come from? How does it get to us? What is going on behind the scenes? This is something that I've probably looked at more than most, but still always fun for me to dig into some more. So we were given an assignment to watch some videos on food systems and discuss them. Specifically, to compare and contrast though I am not great at following directions... At any rate, I got into it. Really into it. And I realized that it needed shared with more than those in my class. So I decided to bring it to you :D So here are the videos to check out if you're interested...
