Guest Lecture: "The Future of Food and Family Farmers: Thinking about Food Utopias," by Paul V. Stock, Professor, University of Kansas

From pollinating bees to dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, how we produce and consume food says much about our relationship with the air, water, plants, and animals that surround us and nourish us. Family farmers play a vital role in the system. We all have different and deeply personal answers about what constitutes good food that are shaped by traditions, experiences, nutrition, and community. So what's in your food utopia?
