UPRISINGS: A HANDS-ON GUIDE TO THE COMMUNITY GRAIN REVOLUTION
Author: Sarah Simpson, Heather McLeod
If we want to reduce our environmental impact, build resiliency in our community and improve food security, it's up to us to make it happen. In many North American communities, the instrument of change is ... grain. Grain is the perfect metaphor for how we've lost control of our food supply and the skills and tools to feed ourselves. Uprisings show how communities can regain their power by reviving local grain production to improve food security, local economies and the environment.
Profiles of 10 unique community models demonstrating how local grain production is making a difference are rounded out by step-by-step instructions for small-scale grain production that will turn any community into a hotbed of revolution. Learn about:
