Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Farmer Jane profiles thirty women in the sustainable food industry, describing their agriculture and business models and illustrating the amazing changes they are making in how we connect with food. These advocates for creating a more holistic and nurturing food and agriculture system also answer questions on starting a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program, how to get involved in policy at local and national levels, and how to address the different types of renewable energy and finance them.

Book News Annotation:

30 women from the sustainable food movement in the US, among them farmers, filmmakers, organizers, chefs, and authors, are profiled in this earnest volume. Profiles are presented in sections on building new relationships between farm and eater, advocating for social change, promoting local and seasonal food, networks of sustainable food, urban farm women, and the next generation of sustainable farmers. Each chapter concludes with "recipes for action" supplying ways in which one, as an eater, farmer, or owner of a food business, can become involved in the sustainable food movement. Costa, a food writer living in the East Bay area of California, has worked with the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF), and organized for the preservation of organic standards.
