January 27, 2011: Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners and Smart-Cookin’ Mamas: Fighting Back in an Age of Industrial Agriculture
The rapidly growing alternative food system is made up of people reclaiming their connections to their food and their health. In his new book, Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners and Smart-Cookin’Mamas: Fighting Back In An Age of Industrial Agriculture, forty year veteran of the movement Mark Winne, introduces us to innovative “local doers” leading the charge. Heeding Emerson’s call to embrace that great American virture of self-reliance, these doers are defying the authority of the food conglomerates and taking matters into their own hands.
