Overview

The land calls out to us loudly, urgently-sounding an SOS. Our food, health, and security are on the line. The answers from individuals, communities, cities, churches, and other institutions are both imaginative and practical.

The Call of the Land shows how everyone can respond creatively to the challenges we face. From community gardens and locavore restaurants to urban farms and local food banks, and from Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) to farmland trusts, this book is a survey and synthesis of the great transition that is underway.

This vital sourcebook explores:
Listening to the Call - What careful observers say about the state of our land, farms, food, and culture.

Agrarian Ethos - How our ethical values can guide us to renew our foundations wisely, even during a shifting economy.

Citizen Responses - How small actions can lead to major changes .

Community Responses - How dozens of creative initiatives are renewing communities, and how they can be replicated in your town or city.

Echoing the Call - How we can all answer the call of the land, working toward a clean, natural agrarian network.

The Call of the Land is a summons to action, and an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to make a difference for our children and our planet.
