Photo essay: Brooklyn Food Conference

If there was one clear message from the event it is the need to support small farmers. I got to meet my local growers and gain insight on how trade policies and legislation effect our local farmers here and across the world.

Special thanks to Nancy Siesel for providing these photos of the event.
