Imperfect Foods
Farming as Healing with Amber Tamm
How can growing food heal us and ground us in a world that seems to have gone crazy?  After the devastating trauma of her father murdering her mother while she was in school, Amber Tamm lost herself, and then found herself, in the world of farming. Today she's a floral designer, horticulturist, and farmer in New York City focused on nourishing a better food system, one plant at a time.  In this fearless conversation she shares:  * Why so many modern farming practices persist despite not being environmentally or economically sustainable.  * What working on farms taught Amber about the prevalence of racism and sexual assault in agriculture.  * Why Black farmers are often left out of the narrative of farming in America.  * What changes she seeds as necessary to improve our food system for better and for always.  If you're looking to understand agriculture, race, or American history in a new way, this episode has a lot to offer you.  *Episode Show Notes:* * Amber's headshot is by Safiyah Chiniere. Check out her Instagram here.  * Learn more about Amber Tamm on her Instagram page and her website.  * There were nearly 1 million Black farmers in 2020 but there are just 45,000 today.  * Black farmers won 1.25 billion dollars in the Pigford racial discrimination lawsuit against the USDA.  * We discussed the book "Farming While Black" by Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm.  * Amber admires Indian scholar and food sovereignty activist Vandana Shiva.  * Amber recommends learning more about the story of activist Assata Shakur.

Jonathon Porritt, Farhana Yamin - Rathbones : The Earth Convention
The Earth Convention - Energy and Finance Our second event in the Earth Convention series looks at creating a green transition in energy and finance that can help us move towards a sustainable recovery from the pandemic. How is business organising itself for climate action? How can the power of the financial industry, not least in the City of London, drive green investment? How do we ensure international development is sustainable? What is the role for market mechanisms and how much can individuals - as shareholders, for example - influence business investment and behaviour? We will look at technology, the role of the state and lessons from the 2008 financial crisis. Speakers Jonathon Porritt is Co-Founder of Forum for the Future, a writer, broadcaster and campaigner on sustainable development. His latest book is Hope in Hell: A decade to confront the climate emergency. Mike Berners-Lee is a professor of sustainability at Lancaster University and the founder of Small World Consulting.
