Opening KBOO's morning of programs dedicated to exploring sustainable cities, Ani hosts a discussion

Some say the development of agriculture allowed for the first population dense areas, making up the first cities.  As cities grow, the model holds that the population density necessitates that food be imported to feed the masses.  The larger the cities, the more resources are imported to feed the population centers.

The US is a major food importer.  Even in a crop rich area like the Pacific Northwest, most grocery stores stock produce imported for Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, and China.  When food is grown for export cash crops, how are areas growing the food effected? And how are communities effected when they consume imported food?
