Excellent talk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxsMSkgqwHw

"Cheryl Rogowski is a family farmer and a McArthur Genius Award winner. Watch her moving talk about sustainable farming from a farmer's point of view."

The theme of TEDxManhattan was Changing the Way We Eat: http://www.tedxmanhattan.org/2011talks/. Looks like lots of good talks.
