‘Rebuilding the Foodshed’
From rural outposts to city streets, people are sowing, growing, selling and eating food produced close to home — and are crying out for agricultural reform, making local food into everything from a movement buzzword to the newest darling of food trendsters.
But now it’s time to take the conversation to the next level. In ‘Rebuilding the Foodshed,’ author Philip Ackerman-Leist discusses rebuilding regional food systems to replace the destructive aspects of industrial agriculture, meet food demands affordably and sustainably, and be resilient enough to endure potentially rough times ahead.
