From Farmers' Fields to Rooftop Gardens - How Canadians Are Changing the Way We EateBook - 2010
"Strawberries in January, fresh tomatoes year-round and New Zealand lamb at all times - these well-travelled foods have a carbon footprint the size of an SUV. But a burgeoning local food movement is taking place in Canadian cities, farms and shops and is changing both the way we eat and teh way we think about food. Locavore describes how foodies, urbanites, farmers, gardeners adn chefs across Canada are creating a new local food order that is sustainable and can feed us all. Combining front-line reporting, shrewd analysis and passionate writing to delight the gastronome, Locavore shows how the pieces of post-industrial food system are being assembled into something infinately better."
