EcoTuesday discussion: Sustainable versus industrial agriculture

Lakewood Councilman and Ohio representative for the Pew Environment Group, Tom Bullock, will lead a conversation on the extreme hazard to the environment that industrial farm operations in Ohio represent. He will detail the damage being done to our water, air and public health from mega poultry and cattle operations in the state. ?Excessive amounts of antibiotics for animals, increasing bacterial resistance and complicating medical treatment for humans. This system must change.? The change over to sustainable farming is also on the agenda, including making new urban agriculture the clean and green alternative.
