Sonia Faruqi is the author of a new book Project Animal Farm about her journey into the world of food production. Sonia didn’t start her career in food, in fact she started on Wall St. The book is about her journey into this world of how our food arrives at the stores, and she takes you along with her. From factory farms to grocery stores, Sonia provides an overview of our food system, how it affects your choices and what you can do about it.

In the second half, we hear from Chris Phillips and Steven Gray from Greening Homes. As green renovation experts they tell us about some of the obvious choices any home owner can make that is both good for the environment and their pocket books at the same time. We also talk to them about their recent award winning retrofit job, which hear about in the interview and read more about here: http://www.greeninghomes.com/greening-homes-wins-the-prestigious-canadian-green-building-award/
