Food Freedom Radio
Saturdays 8AM - 9AM, Sundays 10AM-11AM
Food Freedom Radio envisions a food system respectful of the water, soil, planet and people. We work towards a historic transformation. How do we move from food production being a source of economic, social and ecological destruction? How do we move towards a food system which is a source of clean water, healthy soil, and a toxin-free environment?
