Not Enough Chairs!

It's very exciting when they run out of chairs at your first public event following book release. Friends, family and strangers -- lots and lots of strangers! -- packed Powell's last night and listened intently as I talked (longer than I'd planned) about the amazing life beneath our feet and the opportunity for healing landscapes by respecting and working with that life.


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.
