Amy Halloran is a writer, teacher and activist who is digging deep into how local food economies can revitalize communities. And she's working hard to improve the situation in her home town of Troy, New York.
Amy is the author of The New Bread Basket, which described the re-emergence of the local grain movement throughout the US - a movement which has continued to grow and build momentum.
In this episode, Mark and Amy talk about how she got into writing and into bread, and the intricate web of connections that make up the international network of local grain communities.
