Food Policy

Screening of Food Forward TV on Sept. 10; View Trailer Here

For new series, Food Forward, the folks at PBS have traveled the country to find “food rebels” people they say are transforming our food and the way we eat. Color us unsurprised that friend-of-Edible Sean Barrett is one of the rebels profiled as an innovator and pioneer. I profiled his company, Dock to Dish, and its restaurant supported fishery in Edible Manhattan earlier this year. The series looks great and Sean is very entertaining. Check it out if you’re in the city.

Get Ready for Seaweed Farms

The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s Marine Program is in the planning stages of launching an initiative to create a new kind of “green” farming on Long Island. The scientists have developed the technology to successfully farm different types of seaweed and will initially focus the project on the waters of the East End.
