A revolution in food — where, how, and when it’s grown — is now sweeping urban centres. Read this book to see why it matters and how we can do it.

—David Suzuki, Co-Founder, David Suzuki Foundation.

 

Our reliance on industrial agriculture has resulted in a food supply riddled with hidden environmental, economic and health care costs and beset by rising prices. Producing food locally makes people healthier, alleviates poverty, creates jobs, and makes cities safer and more beautiful.

 

The Urban Food Revolution is a handbook for community food security based on leading innovations across North America. From commercial micro-gardening and community composting to rebuilding local food processing, distribution and waste systems, the author connects the dots between wishful thinking and practical solutions to making local, fresh sustainable food affordable and widely available.

 

An essential resource for anyone who has lost confidence in the global industrial food system The Urban Food Revolution is packed with practical advice on bringing food production home.

Peter Ladner really separates the wheat from the chaff. If you want to get your head around the important developments without ending up with a headache, this is the book for you.

—Wally Satzewich, Developer, SPIN-Farming
