Farm Together Now Book Event

Join Louisville Native and Author Daniel Tucker on July 2nd for a slide show and discussion of:

Farm Together Now: A portrait of people, places and ideas for a new food movement
By Amy Franceschini & Daniel Tucker, with a foreword by Mark Bittman; Photography by Anne Hamersky & Illustrations by Corinne Matesich; ; Design by Brian Scott. Published by Chronicle Books (December, 2010).
About the Book:
We want to change the way the food system works! Farm Together Now meets with people across the country who are challenging the conventions of industrialized farming and exclusive green economies.

Picked by Michael Pollan as his favorite food book of 2010, this part-travelogue, part-oral history, part-creative exploration of food politics will introduce readers to twenty groups working in agriculture and sustainable food production in the U.S. Throughout 2009 the authors visited twenty farms from coast to coast, talking to farmers about their engagement in sustainable food production, public policy and community organizing efforts. Interviews and photo essays with each farm/garden/project illustrate the inspiring histories, unique characters and everyday struggles of life on these farms. It is through sharing diverse voices from the contemporary farm that this book will inspire and cultivate a new wave of agrarians. Half of the author’s profits will be put into a fund to encourage like-minded documentary projects. See reviews from authors Raj Patel, Rebecca Solnitt, Vandana Shiva, Sandor Katz and blogs Real Food for All, Beyond The Plate, Treehugger, Grist, Farmbrarian, Bookslut, Chicago Reader and others here http://farmtogethernow.org/reviews/
