Smithsonian Exhibit
Our magazine has proudly been talking about healthy, homegrown food for more than four decades. The plaque next to the Smithsonian display case featuring MOTHER EARTH NEWS says, “During the 1960s and ’70s, as waves of cultural and political change swept through American society, food became a tool of resistance, consciousness-raising and self-expression … [People] questioned how the food Americans ate was produced, prepared and consumed, and advocated new models of food production and new diets.”
