The Connection from Plate to Work

How does the quest for professional achievement leave us lacking for authentic connection? Is connecting to our local farmers market the answer? Find strength in tomatoes. As Executive Director of Colorado’s top growers-only markets in Longmont and Boulder, Coppom directs the nonprofit organization’s mission to promote and expand local agriculture and make fresh products accessible to the Boulder County community. Prior to joining the Boulder County Farmers’ Markets, Coppom worked in telecommunications and technology innovation companies. Having been born in Germany, Coppom thinks best when his desk is tidy. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
