Episode Summary

Joan Dye Gussow: This Organic Life
Joan Dye Gussow is one of those rare individuals who act upon their own convictions whether it is of popular held belief, or not. Raising a young family in Congers, NY, and working on her graduate degree at Columbia University, she came to the realization that accessing our food in a global way, one that was dependent on transportation (and a finite resource of oil), was not going to last.It made more sense to obtain food locally -- from farmers, food producers, and yes, even from a garden in your own back yard. This was in the 1960's; clearly a person way ahead of her time.moreless
