Organic, biodynamic, natural, sustainable, farm-raised, fair trade: do these products provide a healthier lifestyle? Can they be affordable? Join our Earth Day–inspired discussion about new trends in the organic revolution and just how far some consumers will go to be green.

Journalist Laura Washington moderates this discussion. Panelists include: Paula Miller, the head of internal education at Whole Foods; Tim Murakami, Growing Home's Urban Farms Manager; and columnist Alison Neumer Lara, who regularly writes for and is a restaurant critic for Crain’s Chicago Business.
