The author is the founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), a non-profit, US-based network dedicated to safeguarding organic standards and promoting a healthy, just, and regenerative system of food, farming, and commerce. His book outlines a path that moves from degeneration of the land through destructive food, agriculture and land use practices and the overuse of fossil fuels to regeneration guided by his five rules. Although heavily US-focused – there are no Canadian organizations in
the resource list – it is written for the layperson who is interested in learning about grassroots movements such as this, and offers hope for our collective future. It’s worth noting that the book is published on chlorine-free recycled paper and also with vegetable-based ink. This book is housed in the Climate Change collection which is found at the Brodie and Waverley libraries.
