Organiser's description (via the Food Museum):

Award-winning author Louise Gray (The Ethical Carnivore) joins us to discuss her newest book Avocado Anxiety. In an effort to make sense of the complex food system, Louise tracked the stories of our most popular fruit and vegetables from farm to fruit bowl, in order to assess their impact on the planet.

As her book reveals, there are no clear-cut answers. But that doesn’t mean we should throw our hands up in despair. Rather, we need to learn what questions to pose, so we can engage in more nuanced and thoughtful cost-benefit calculations at the grocery store.
