Ten Questions with Michael Dimock, President of Roots of Change

Food Tank had the chance to speak with Michael Dimock, President of Roots of Change, who will be speaking at this year’s Farm Tank Summit in Sacramento.

Food Tank (FT): What inspired you to get involved in food and agriculture? 

Michael Dimock (MD): The realization in 1988 that the food system was the foundation of civilization and that if we did not get it right in terms of sustainable principles and practices, nothing else really mattered, because the human pursuit of sustenance was destroying the resource base and exploiting developing nations and the people that work the land.
