Steve Mann has hoes in different area codes

I used to put smug vegetable gardeners in the same category as militant bicycle riders, self-satisfied Prius drivers and people who can afford to cover their roofs with solar panels.

But when a friend invited me to hear Michael Pollan’s talk at Unity Temple regarding his newest book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, I was amazed at the throngs of people who showed up. People obviously want to take back control of what they’re eating.

The same friend who took me to hear Pollan also introduced me to organic farm guru Steve Mann. My friend met Mann at a Food Not Lawns course she took through Communiversity, where Mann teaches a segment on no-till gardening.
