Movements are most often formed by a handful of people declaring the end of the current status quo and embracing a new way of relating that is both healthier and more just. That’s how the organic food movement had its re-emergence in the early 1970’s.

We are honoring those early beginnings with a series of interviews with the pioneers of this movement. In this episode, we are exploring the role of mentorship with three generations of food advocates from the team at Earl's Organic Produce.
