Omnivore - Pollan pushes a petition!

Michael Pollan petitions for the new "Farmer in Chief."

As Cliff mentioned in an earlier blogpost, acclaimed author and organic food activist, Michael Pollan, will be speaking at the Georgia Organics Conference on March 21, 2009 in Decatur. Slow Food Atlanta gives guests the opportunity to meet and greet with Pollan and chow down on what the earth has to offer.

In bigger news, Pollan has put together a petition encouraging President Obama to nominate a Secretary of Agriculture who supports sustainable family farmers. Add your name to the list of over 13,000 people already taking action.
