Sept. 2017 - Bread Wine and Chocolate

9/6/17 #AgBookClub Recap

Miss the first #AgBookClub chat this week? No worries, we’ve compiled a summary of the chat to prepare you for next week!

Week 1 of Bread, Wine and Chocolate covered pages 1 – 82, including the intro, a quick chapter on biodiversity, and the first section – wine. Below are several responses that we thought summed up the chat well, covered themes, or contained thought-provoking questions or comments (limited to 140 characters, of course).

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section of this post or on Twitter (clicking the date at the bottom of each tweet will take you directly to that tweet on Twitter’s website). You can see the full conversation by searching “#AgBookClub” on Twitter.

Q1: What’s one thing that jumped out at you in this selection? Any key takeaways you’d like to share?

Q2: What have you liked so far about this reading selection? The book in general?

Q3: What have you disliked so far about this reading selection? The book in general?

Q4: The author says this book is about biodiversity. Is this an issue in ag? If so, what’s the solution? Who is responsible?

Q5: If most crops can be grown anywhere, why are many crops centralized in certain regions? 

Q6: Like lots of things, winemaking has changed a lot. What do you think we gain/lose in those changes? What brought the change?

Week 2’s assignment is to read pages 83 – 134 of Bread, Wine & Chocolate (view the full schedule here). The #AgBookClub Twitter chat takes place Wednesdays at 8pm CT.
