Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

After decades of food delivered by industrial agriculture based on cheap oil, we are learning the health costs to our own bodies and the biosphere are too great. A revolution in food – where, how, and when it’s grown is now sweeping urban centres. Read this book to see why it matters and how we can do it.
— David Suzuki, Canadian environmental activist, professor emeritus, University of British Columbia, host of CBC’s The Nature of Things, author of 43 books, recipient of 25 honorary doctorates as well as numerous awards, including the Order of Canada.

As a farmer I’m amazed by the amount of discussion and debate there currently is about food systems and farming. It’s overwhelming, but Peter Ladner really separates the wheat from the chaff. If you want to get your head around the important developments without ending up with a headache, this is the book for you. — Wally Satzewich, developer, SPIN-Farming
