When I started working on The Soil Will Save Us, I happily discovered Food Tank (“the food think tank”) launched by Danielle Nierenberg and Ellen Gustafson, a website and newsletter which highlights the great things people around the world are doing to reclaim agriculture and fix broken food systems. It’s easy to feel hopeless and powerless, but really, that just allows the industrial food system to carry on with its horrid business as usual. Food Tank invigorates the food conversation with hope and ideas. You should sign up for their newsletter.
I signed up a long time ago and was delighted and honored to find The Soil Will Save Us on their recent Spring Reading List. Exciting to see my book rubbing jackets with books by such admired writers and thinkers!
