Matter Germany Needless

Food should be cheap, and labor should be cheap, and everything should be the same no matter where you go; whether it's a McDonald's in Germany or one in California, it should be the same. And this message is destroying cultures around the world. Needless to say, agriculture goes with it.

Get Together I Think Bring

Create a garden; bring children to farms for field trips. I think it's important that parents and teachers get together to do one or two things they can accomplish well - a teaching garden, connecting with farms nearby, weave food into the curriculum.

- Alice Waters

Foods Buy Farms

Buy foods from nearby farms and have that food served in the cafeteria.

Been Very Different Places

Weekends Guess Maybe

I guess I don't really believe in retirement. I believe in shorter days and maybe in weekends!

Talking About Am

I am disappointed because nobody is talking about food and agriculture. They're talking about the diets of children, but they're talking about Band-Aids. We're not seeing a vision.

True Cattle Less

Grass-fed cattle are leaner. But it's not true that they are less flavorful.
