[youtube]The Food Commons with Larry Yee

A Good Food Economy is a part of the economy of a country at peace with its neighbors and its environment - the air, the land, the water and the creatures living in, on and under it. It is the local embodiment of a regional, national and international economy in which people have useful work to do at fair wages, affordable access to housing, health care, education and a secure retirement.

The Food Commons envisions a re-creation of the local and regional food systems that preceded the current global industrial food systems, updated to reflect 21st-century advances in information systems, communications, community-based organizational and economic models, the science and practice of sustainable agriculture and the changes in culture and demand.
The Food Commons will leverage, support and enhance existing and emerging regional food system initiatives to offer the American public a wide range of benefits that are not widely distributed in our current food system.
Larry Yee currently serves as the Co-founder and Coordinating Director for the Food Commons, a project dedicated to designing and developing both local and national infrastructure within a whole systems approach and new economic paradigm for local/regional food.

In 2008, Larry retired from a 32-year career with the University of California where he was the director of the Ventura County UC Cooperative Extension office and the UC Hansen Trust, which operated the UC Hansen Agricultural Center.
