Episode: Digging in the Dirt w/ Mark Bomford of The Yale Sustainable food Project

 Mark Bomford is the Director of the Yale Sustainable Food Project. Mark’s career in the sustainable food movement began in 1997, when he founded the successful “Growing Schools” initiative with the LifeCycles Project Society in Victoria, BC. Mark joined the Yale Sustainable Food Project in October 2011.

The Yale Sustainable Food Project manages an organic farm on campus and runs diverse programs that support exploration and academic inquiry related to food and agriculture.
How food is grown and raised, processed, transported, prepared, and disposed of has environmental, social, and financial implications. Yale Dining is committed to offering delicious, healthy food that is carefully sourced and prepared. To be qualified as “sustainable,” food served in the Yale Dining Halls must meet at least one of four criteria: local, eco-sensitive, humane, fair.
