FAQ & Useful Links

I’ve organized the resources and FAQs in six categories: Sustainable Eating & Nutrition, Growing Food, Politics & Policy, Animal Welfare, Journalism & Writing, and For Parents & Kids. Under each category I’ve included my answers to the questions I’m most often asked on that topic. I’ve also listed links to organizations, publications, individuals and companies doing useful or interesting work in these areas. While this is not a comprehensive list, there are some great resources here and I hope you’ll take some time to familiarize yourself with them.
