Second part in a two-part series (part one available here). Do we privilege larger cities when we talk about a sustainable, low-carbon future?  Are smaller cities excluded from these conversations? Catherine Tumber, author of Small, Gritty, and Green: The Promise of America’s Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low-Carbon World, argues that smaller industrial cities have an increasingly significant role to play in our low-carbon, relocalized urban futures.

In this podcast, Catherine Tumber focuses on the importance of agriculture for small industrial cities in relocalizing and strengthening local and regional economies – and ultimately wrestling power away from corporate agribusiness.
