Book Giveaway: Prince Charles’ ‘The Prince’s Speech: On the Future of Food’

A couple of weeks ago, I has the pleasure of interviewing Laurie David, author of The Family Dinner and producer of the movie An Inconvenient Truth for a magazine piece I was writing. She is a champion of good, whole, healthy, local-as-you-can-get-it food being served at the family dinners that she believes are so important. She’s one of us.

A few days after the interview, I received a package in the mail from Laurie with several copies of The Prince’s Speech: On the Future of Food by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, better known to most of us as Prince Charles. The book contains the speech that the prince gave on May 4, 2011 at the Future of Food Conference at Georgetown University. You can hear a few of his words from the speech in the video below.


Prince Charles’ Duchy Home Farm at his residence was converted to organic in 1986 that not only supplies food residence, it also supplies to local restaurants and has a vegetable box scheme, or what we would call a community supported agriculture program. For his box scheme, he has heritage seeds grown to help keep the gene pool of those seeds alive. He has also an organic brand of foods that are sold in England called Duchy Originals.
