On June 11th, Green Heroes™ will kick off Season 2 with our full season line-up to come throughout the months of June and July, starting with “Biting into Change” at 7:30pm on TVO.
“Biting into Change” looks at how food is at the core of our life, but changing how we produce and consume food is at the centre of a sustainable life. That is why these Green Heroes are finding planet-saving at the end of a fork with celebrity chef Jamie Kennedy and renowned musician and producer, Daniel Lanois, at the forefront of it all. Jamie is one of Canada’s most celebrated chefs, and his passion for locally grown food has shaped the evolution of Canadian cuisine, one dish at a time. Collaborating with musicians and chefs to create FoodStock, a culinary event that drew 30,000 supporters to stop the mega-quarry of Southern Ontario farmland, Jamie is definitely one Hero to watch.
Daniel is another Hero who made an impact by stepping out of the recording studio, after producing career-changing records for Bob Dylan, U2 and Emmylou Harris, and became a food advocate supporting Ontario farmers. In August 2011, he hosted and helped organized the Harvest Festival Picnic in Hamilton, a celebration of local food and music with a line-up of stellar musical acts including the Tragically Hip and Sarah Harmer. This summer, the Greenbelt Harvest picnic will be featuring the one and only Neil Young and Crazy Horse – a sure-fire way to spread the word about supporting local while having a great time!
