Food Freedom Radio

Saturdays 8AM - 9AM

Food Freedom Radio envisions a food system respectful of  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?

Host Laura Hedlund. Laura earned a certificate in Urban Farming from PRI Cold Climate, helped to start a community garden in 2008 which is now part of the Open Door Pantry and grows blueberries, hazelnuts, gooseberries and more.
