The Gift of Farming
May 22, 2018
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
If you ate today, you have a farmer to thank. As of the last census, only one percent of Americans are farmers. With the global population expected to exceed nine billion by 2050, farmers will have to grow sixty percent more food to feed the masses. Who and where will these additional farmers come from? From a farming family, Henna Hundal returns from Harvard University to co-host with Brigitte Jia about this crucial topic. The program begins with a reading from the forthcoming book, Be The Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers: Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices written by Cynthia Brian and continues with the thoughts of our hosts on the importance of re-introducing our technological society to the graces of an agrarian life. Farmers are disappearing. Henna was raised on an almond farm in central California and the pride that her family takes in feeding the world. Brigitte offers an insightful look at farming through Art Attack. If you want to eat, grow your own food!
