Next Course: Knowledge, Food, Change

The folks at BeyondOrganic have cooked up a wonderful podcast this week, featuring an interview with Larry Bain.

Larry is the Executive Director of Next Course; an organisation that has sent a team of chefs into San Fransisco County Jail, and is empowering the women inmates with the knowledge of food, cuisine and community.

They teach these women the importance of organic food and it's physical and psychological benefits, the art of food preparation, and the sense of wholeness that comes from communing with others around a freshly made meal. The hope is that when these women get back into the community, they will have the knowledge to take control of a very important aspect of their lives.

I urge you to head over to BeyondOrganic and listen to this insightful interview...
