Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian welcomes Katherine Leiner, author of "Growing Roots: The New Generation of Sustainable Farmers, Cooks and Activists." The book focuses on who's growing our food these days. With consumers turning their attentions from the manufactured to the local and organic, Katherine Leiner goes in search of how growing food in America is changing. What she finds is surprising: a highly educated generation—many of whom were not born into that life—are redefining agriculture. Katherine Leiner has been writing since she was a child. She has published many award-winning books for children and young adults and, more recently, her first novel for adults, Digging Out, published by Penguin. She is working on another novel due out in 2012. Season 2 of Jazzy Vegetarian launches nationally via public television stations starting July 1, 2012 (check your local listings) and features 13 half-hour episodes serving up mouthwatering, vegan menus for anybody looking for delicious, nutritious food. Each show features Dr. Pam Popper of Forks Over Knives! From  “Rockin’ Moroccan Stew” to “Chocolate Mousse Ginger Pie,” this season ROCKS!
