1603427996 More and more people are seeking out local food, and Reclaiming Our Food tells the stories of more than 50 groups across North America who are finding new ways to provide local food for their communities. For example, Growing Gardens, in Oregon, installs home gardens for low-income families and hosts follow-up workshops for the owners. Lynchburg Grows, in Virginia, bought an abandoned urban greenhouse business and turned it into an organic farm that employs people with disabilities and sells its food through a local farmers? market and a CSA. And Sunburst Trout Farm, a small family business in North Carolina, is showing that it?s possible to raise fish sustainably and sell to a local market. Photo essays by acclaimed photographer Jason Houston bring the local food movement to life in unforgettable images. This practical handbook will empower and inspire community activists and planners, schools, small farmers, and everyone who wants to increase their community?s access to food that doesn?t arrive on a train, plane, or cargo ship.
