Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Going to Green is unparalleled in its narrative inventiveness, compelling visual imagery, and intellectual rigor. While designed for high school students, it is also perfectly suited to introductory courses for community-based organizations."--Jennifer Wolch, Professor of Geography and Planning and Director of the Center for Sustainable Cities, University of Southern California

"The Edens Lost & Found series is an important addition to material available to introduce students at all levels to environmental values. The presentation of some hard lessons regarding success and failure, and how much time and effort go into trying to change our neighborhoods and cities, makes this series unique. I look forward to the next opportunity that I have to use the Edens Lost & Found series, and enthusiastically recommend it to educators at all levels."--Greg Andranovich, PhD, Professor of Political Science, California State University, Los Angeles

"An innovative educational collaborative that examines the role that residents can play in the revitalization of their neighborhoods, towns, and cities through sustainable practices and environmental awareness."--Eric Garcetti, President, Los Angeles City Council
