GREEN FOCUS: Cool Things That Are Green

Farm Together Now Book Release At Red Black Cafe Feb 21
2/14/2011

On Monday February 21st there will be a gathering of local food activists at Red and Black Cafe to celebrate the release of the book "Farm Together Now: A portrait of people, places and ideas for a new food movement". Representatives from Tryon Life Community Farm who are featured in the book will be present.

The book wants to change the way the food system works! Farm Together Now meets with people across the country who are challenging the conventions of industrialized farming and exclusive green economies.

This part-travelogue, part-oral history, part-creative exploration of food politics will introduce readers to twenty groups working in agriculture and sustainable food production in the U.S. Throughout 2009 the authors, Amy Franceschini and Daniel Tucker, visited twenty farms from coast to coast, talking to farmers about their engagement in sustainable food production, public policy and community organizing efforts. Interviews and photo essays with each farm/garden/project illustrate the inspiring histories, unique characters and everyday struggles of life on these farms. It is through sharing diverse voices from the contemporary farm that this book will inspire and cultivate a new wave of agrarians. Half of the author’s profits will be put into a fund to encourage like-minded documentary projects.

We are happy to share the news that GRIST picked their top 10 food books of 2010 and Michael Pollan picked Farm Together Now. He says: “My favorite book of the season is Farm Together Now: A Portrait of People, Places, and Ideas for a New Food Movement, by Amy Franceschini and Daniel Tucker. It consists of interviews with a wide range of farmers (and activists) who you haven’t heard of. Inspiring without being romantic in the least, it advances the whole conversation about sustainable agriculture and access.”
