LISTEN: Ruppenthal’s Urban Guide to Sustainable Living Through Food

When you think of climate change, you probably think of contributing factors relating to transportation—specifically, the transportation of people from one place to another, be it through cars, trucks, buses, SUVs, motorcycles, and the like. But what’s the connection between your food supply and climate change? That’s the question Crop to Cuisine Radio aims to answer.

In this interview, the folks at Crop to Cuisine talk to author R. J. Ruppenthal (Fresh Food from Small Spaces: The Square-Inch Gardener’s Guide to Year-Round Growing, Fermenting, and Sprouting) about the impact of our diet on the atmosphere.

In this episode of Crop To Cuisine we take a look at two authors who come to the forefront of sustainability and food from unlikely backgrounds. Eugene Cordero is a professor of Meteorology and has joined forces with Laura Stec to write Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite out of Global Warming. And R.J. Ruppenthal is a professor of law. His new publication, Fresh Food From Small Spaces, is a handbook for people living in urban areas that want to live sustainably through food. We speak with both about their passion for food, the role of innovation in a greener world and having fun with all of it.
