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.
Urban Farming Handbook 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 a 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 nonprofit organizations
• Seventy full-color photographs showing a diverse local food community at home, work, and play

Read Urban Farming Handbook 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.
