What happens when a small garlic farm in New Mexico goes against corporate giants in the Chinese garlic industry? Author Stanley Crawford has written a true David versus Goliath story as he chronicles his battles with the U.S. Department of Commerce and lawyers representing the largest importer of Chinese garlic. The unusual case even caught the attention of Netflix which aired a documentary called “Garlic Breath.” Meet the author and hear his amazing story at our upcoming lecture.
