From the author of Depletion and Abundance, upstate New York farmer Sharon Astyk is due out with a new book in April 2009. Titled A Nation of Farmers: Defeating the Food Crisis on American Soil the book examines the limits and dangers of the globalized food system and how returning to the basics is our best hope. The book includes in-depth guidelines for:
- Creating resilient local food systems
- Growing, cooking, and eating sustainably and naturally
- Becoming part of the solution to the food crisis
While the target is America, it should be equally valuable for any Canadian community looking to improve and shore up community food security.
