When 70,000 people showed up last weekend to celebrate “Farm to Fork” at an annual festival in Sacramento, it was an opportunity for Farm to Table Talk podcast host Mark Wasson to sit down with three pioneering leaders of Farm to Fork: California Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross; Chef and Owner of Mulvaney’s B & L Patrick Mulvaney; and Michael Dimock, President of Roots of Change. The panel discussion carries on as thousand of city residents can be heard in the background enjoying the sights, sounds, tastes and presentations of a region that is proud to be the Farm to Fork Capital.
CDFA Secretary Karen Ross on the importance of the Farm to Fork movement in California:
“We have forty million consumers in this state who are voters and eaters and neighbors, and we have seventy-seven thousand farms. We need partners. Nothing happens without partnership, collaboration and community… It’s how we bring everyone together around something so fundamentally essential to how we live, and live better, and live in a way that’s good for the earth, good for the economy, good for every person who works in the system.”
