"Eating is an agricultural act"
- from “The Pleasures of Eating” from What Are People For? by Wendell Berry
From the bottom of my heart, I cannot be more grateful that Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson are coming to town to lend their presence to our Fifth Annual Edible Austin Eat Drink Local Week on Sunday, December 4.
One of the most influential and beloved voices of environmental stewardship in America, Wendell Berry has written about our relationship with the land in every possible literary form—poetry, fiction and essays. He is the farmer who planted the seed five decades ago that feeds the local food movement. A caring critic of American culture, he challenges us to define our relationship with the world from which food comes and to find our conscious place within it. The pleasure of eating—and life itself—depends on it.
