about

Fifteen people—plus a class of first graders—tell how local food, farms, and gardens changed their lives and their community...and how they can change yours, too.

Growing a Garden City includes:

  • Fifteen first-person stories of personal and civic transformation from a range of individuals, including farmers and community garden members, a low-income senior and troubled teen, a foodie, a food bank officer, and many more
  • Seven in-depth “How It Works” sections on student farms, community gardens, community supported agriculture (CSA), community education, farm work therapy, community outreach, and more
  • Detailed information on dozens of additional resources from relevant books and websites to government programs and national non-profit organizations
  • Over 80 full-color photographs showing a diverse local food community at home, work, and play

Read Growing a Garden City to:

  • Learn how people like you, with busy lives like yours, can and do enjoy the many benefits of local food without having to become full-time organic farmers
  • Gain the information you need to organize or get involved in your own "growing community” anywhere across the country and around the world
