• We kind of know that food is necessary to survive. But our ways of connecting with food have been, in many ways, taken over by capitalism - certainly taken over by the influence large corporations have on the way that we eat and the way that we think about food.

And particularly in urban areas, you'll see kids who honestly believe tomatoes come from the supermarket rather than from a plant.
