• THE FOOD REVOLUTION

    The book remains one of the most frequently cited and talked about works on food politics. It was one of the first to expose the dangers inherent in our factory farming system, to advocate a complete plant-based diet, and to discuss the negative health effects of eating genetically modified foods and animal products of all kinds.

  • THE FORAGER'S HARVEST: EDIBLE WILD PLANTS

    Rather than cover hundreds of plants in abbreviated accounts like the typical field guide, author Samuel Thayer has chosen a smaller selection of species to discuss in exhaustive detail, including only those plants he has eaten 50 times or more. This book contains as many as 10 high-quality color photographs of each plant. These have been painstakingly selected to facilitate identification and depict the plant parts at exactly the stage of growth in which they should be harvested. The accompanying text is accurate and thorough, giving readers of any experience level the confidence to harvest wild plants for food. Botanically, the text is accurate — yet it remains accessible to the layperson by using technical terms only when necessary.

    The Forager’s Harvest has many unique features that will appeal to naturalists, hikers, campers, survivalists, homesteaders, gardeners, chefs, Native Americans and whole-food enthusiasts. The book contains a calendar of harvest times for wild produce, a step-by-step protocol for positive identification, an illustrated glossary tailored to the needs of foragers, a recommended reading list, plus special sections on conservation, safety, nutrition, harvest techniques, preparation methods and storage. While The Forager’s Harvest is not a regional guide, it will prove most useful to readers in the eastern US and Canada, the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Northwest.

  • THE FOREST GARDEN GREENHOUSE

    In The Forest Garden Greenhouse, Jerome Osentowski presents a wholly new approach to a very old horticultural subject. Osentowski is one of North America’s most accomplished permaculture designers, and here he shows how bringing the forest garden indoors is not only possible, but doable on unlikely terrain and in cold climates, using near-net-zero technology. Different from other works on greenhouse design and management, this groundbreaking book advocates for an indoor agriculture using permaculture design concepts—integration, multifunctions, perennials and polycultures—that take season extension into new and important territory.

  • THE GARDENER'S GUIDE TO WEATHER & CLIMATE

    All gardeners are at the whim of Mother Nature, and most are obsessed with weather. When is the last frost? What is the chance for rain? Will late-spring hail affect my flower beds? The answers to questions like these play a significant role in a gardener’s success.

Throughout, the reader will find hundreds of helpful color photographs and illustrations that bring the concepts to life.

    Though climate change is a serious threat, this useful book remains positive and upbeat in its approach. It shows that instead of gardening at the mercy of the weather, knowledgeable gardeners can make the weather work for them.

  • THE GLUTEN-FREE GOURMET BAKES BREAD

    A breakthrough bread book by the unchallenged expert in gluten-free and wheat-free cooking.

    In Bette Hagman's three earlier cookbooks, she created recipes for great-tasting food working with gluten-free flours that are safe for celiacs (those who are intolerant to gluten) and for those with wheat allergies. Knowing from her own hard-earned experience that bread is the greatest loss for those who can't eat wheat, oats, rye or barley, she has experimented with exciting new bean-based flours and has devoted an entire book to breads. Here are yeast breads, yeast-free breads, muffins, rolls, buns, breakfast breads and crackers—a vast array of recipes for the oven or the bread machine—for people who cannot buy breads at a bakery or supermarket but must rely on their own kitchens to provide the staff of life.

    Along with dozens of great recipes are: a beginner's guide to understanding and cooking with gluten-free flours; answers to commonly asked questions about baking with these flours; and a source list of where to buy gluten-free baking supplies.

  • THE GMO DECEPTION

    Most of the processed foods on supermarket shelves (75%!) contain genetically engineered ingredients. These foods range from soda to soup, crackers to condiments, and their long-term effects on human health and ecology are still unknown. Public concern has been steadily intensifying. The GMO Deception, the new book from the Council for Responsible Genetics, gathers the best, most thought-provoking essays by the leading scientists, science writers and public health advocates on this subject. They address such questions as:

    • Are GM foods safe and healthy for us?
    • Will GM food solve world hunger?
    • Who controls the power structure of food production?
    • Are GM foods ecologically safe and sustainable?
    • Why is it so difficult to get GM foods labeled in the United States?
    • What kinds of regulations and policies should be instituted?
    • How is seed biodiversity, of lack thereof, affecting developing countries?
    • Should animals be genetically modified for food?
    • How are other countries handling GM crops?

    This definitive book encourages us to think about the social, environmental and moral ramifications of where this particular branch of biotechnology is taking us, and what we should do about it.

  • THE GOOD FOOD REVOLUTION

    A pioneering urban farmer and MacArthur "Genius Award" winner points the way to building a new food system that can feed-and heal-broken communities.

    The son of a sharecropper, Will Allen had no intention of ever becoming a farmer himself. But after years in professional basketball and as an executive for Kentucky Fried Chicken and Procter & Gamble, Allen cashed in his retirement fund for a two-acre plot a half mile away from Milwaukee's largest public housing project. The area was a food desert with only convenience stores and fast-food restaurants to serve the needs of local residents.

    In the face of financial challenges and daunting odds, Allen built the country's preeminent urban farm-a food and educational center that now produces enough vegetables and fish year-round to feed thousands of people. Employing young people from the neighboring housing project and community, Growing Power has sought to prove that local food systems can help troubled youths, dismantle racism, create jobs, bring urban and rural communities closer together, and improve public health. Today, Allen's organization helps develop community food systems across the country.

    An eco-classic in the making, The Good Food Revolution is the story of Will's personal journey, the lives he has touched, and a grassroots movement that is changing the way our nation eats.
