    Mark Bomford, director of Yale’s Sustainable Food Project and head of Yale Farm, will your take questions about good food, sustainable agriculture, and respect for the land — live on the web at noon EDT on Thursday, Oct. 24, on @YaleLive.

    Viewers may submit questions before and during the episode via Yale’s Facebook page, Twitter@Yale or socialmedia@yale.edu.

    @YaleLive is an interview program offering people worldwide an opportunity to engage with Yale minds. It broadcasts on the university’s YouTube channel.

    Bomford came to Yale in 2011 from the University of British Columbia where, as founding director of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, he established a thriving 60-acre teaching and research farm.

    As the Sustainable Food Project’s director, Bomford leads Yale’s contribution to a broad movement for change in the way society produces and consumes food. Yale Farm is one of the project’s laboratories — a year-round organic farm supporting the exploration and study of food and agriculture. It produces hundreds of varieties of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers, and is home to free-ranging chicken flocks and honeybees. On Fridays in spring and fall, students bake pizzas from an open-hearth wood-fired oven.
