This week on Eating Matters, we provide a recap of the Good Festival, a Brooklyn-based conference started by Wen-Jay Ying, Founder and Director of Local Roots NYC.

Wen-Jay joins host Jenna Liut in the studio to discuss the key conference themes of compassion, communication and collaboration – not just hippie ideals but also a prescription for a healthy food system. Tune in to learn how to make choices that celebrate and benefit our local food economy.

Later in the show, Leo Pollock discusses his Rhode Island-based startup, Compost Plant, the first full service composter in the state.
