Hello and Welcome to Farm Groove!My name is Carter Clough and I'm the creator of Farm Groove, a website that's dedicated to the information and discussion about the Food Movement as well as offering great T-shirt designs that reflect the many aspects of the Food Movement.
I first encountered the Food Movement about six years ago when I started my first veggie garden and I was surfing the internet for more info. I was curious about everything that kept coming within my search parameters and it was within one of those searches where I came across a new concept for me that was called the Food Movement.
That search ended up on a New York Review of Books by Michael Pollan. The subjects of the review was five books on food and food politics, but it was the review by Pollan, titled "The Food Movement, Rising," that became a kind of sensation amongst the many groups that made up the food movement.
For me, learning about the Food Movement was a kind of eureka moment. The idea encompassed the passion I felt and it offered a great way to understand all the many parts of the food we eat. The Food Movement has become a tidy way of presenting all the variables of food. Amongst some of them I deem of import: creation, sources, environmental, transportation, style, and lately, nutritional value.
So this is what the Farm Groove blog will be dissecting on a semi-daily agenda. It is my hope that this blog reaches many and fosters stimulating conversations about the current state and the future direction of food.
