Weekend reading: Food, Farms, and Community
Lisa Chase and Vern Grubinger. Food, Farms, and Community: Exploring Food Systems. University of New Hampshire Press, 2014.
Here’s my blurb for this excellent and most useful book:
If you haven’t a clue as to what’s meant by food systems, read Food, Farms, and Community right now. The book covers the territory from farm to fork, clarifying the complexities and focusing on what’s really important: what to do to create food and farming systems that promote the health of people and the planet.
Enjoy the summer weekend!
