From the Shelf: The Town That Food Saved

“The participatory nature of local food systems holds tremendous power, not merely to secure and understand the cycle and source of our nourishment, but to reawaken a sense of responsibility for and toward the communities in which we live. To assume accountability for our food is to assume accountability for our lives. Once coaxed back to life, where will that accountability end? It’s anyone’s guess, but for the record, mine is that it will prove a far more powerful force than we can even imagine.”
