Eight months into Food Safety News, we had the chance to bring together the Washington DC, Denver and Seattle Bureaus, along with our interns and free-lancers in Las Vegas.  The goal is to talk this weekend about how we have been doing and how we can do better.

As I said to one Ag reporter a few months ago, "legislators and policy makers should set their sights on creating a sustainable and regionalized agricultural system. We need to balance safety with environmental policy — both energy/global warming and protection of biodiversity, … We need a food policy that helps create healthy humans.”

We hope that Food Safety News is making us think about this.
