This book is for you if you’re interested in food and health, whether it’s your own personal, family, or community health. You’ll learn how schools are improving their cafeteria food while also teaching youth about nutrition and their environment.
You’ll also learn how communities are changing their laws to accommodate backyard chickens, goats and bees. And learn how community gardens prevent conflicts by setting things up right at the beginning. You’ll also learn how new and experienced farmers are making their farming businesses profitable.
Whether you like to buy local food, raise a garden, or are a new or experienced farmer, a school nutritionist, or economic development guru, this book can help you.
You’ll be inspired and, more, you’ll learn a host of important lessons from community food leaders across the U.S. Their successes offer both inspiration and practical advice.
Acclaimed photographer Jason Houston provides photo essays of eight community food projects, detailing their unusual work.
