"At either end of any food chain you find a biological system -- a patch of soil, a human body -- health of one is connected, literally, to the health of the other."
- Michael Pollan

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bumper crop of books on growing food
Portland Press Herald - 4/11/2010.
By Tom Atwell – An author gets a hot idea, perfect for the market at the moment. But then the book has to be written, edited, designed, published and delivered.
