Program Title: Fit to Eat Season 2 Episode 19
Description: Part of the beauty of a healthy food system comes from the wide variety of people who are involved. Indeed, there is a glorious and productive assortment of ideas and projects and organizations. Sure, the players don’t all have the same power. And there are conflicts and bruised noses and jerking knees. But on the best of days, when the catering has been exceptional and the phase of the moon is just right, all of these groups realize that they are rowing in the same general direction. Of course, in order to have that happen, we need people who are willing to inspire, to try out ideas, to collaborate, to celebrate victories but also joyfully admit when they are wrong. We need, in short, leaders across the food system. Today we talk to one of these leaders in this province. Dan Rubin is… well, I’m not sure how to introduce him, really. He’s a musician, educator, facilitator, gardener, writer, consultant, catalyst, and all all-round agent provocateur in the food sector in the province. He is also the originator of the Food Producers Forum. We met up earlier this summer, on a warm caffeine-fueled August morning, in St. John’s.
