June 25, 2012 | New York City – Earlier this year, The Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food and Farming acted as lead sponsor of a one-day TEDxManhattan event whose theme embraced food, and more specifically, how we can inspire a change to a more sustainable, local approach to producing and eating food.  Now, the entire day of presentations from leading innovators and professionals in the field is available online and on DVD.  The TEDxManhattan DVD is free for noncommercial educational purposes and can be ordered by emailing TEDxManhattan@gmail.com.  The films can also be viewed online via the TEDxManhattan website.
