It is a story and photos all about Garden City Harvest - saw it in print tonight. Will have my review copy next week.
"Growing a Garden City" Release Party
***Thursday, October 7th, at 7 p.m.***
downtown at the Roxy Theater (718 S. Higgins Ave)
Featuring 15 main characters--a farmer, a foodie, a troubled teen, a homeless shelter chef, a single mother, an entire first grade class, and more--"Growing a Garden City" tells the surprising, inspiring true story of one of the country's most far-reaching experiments in urban transformation through local food: Missoula's own Garden City Harvest.
Woven into the narrative are an introduction by Bill McKibben, 80 color photographs, and seven "How It Works" sections so people can emulate and build on the achievements in the book wherever they call home.
Jane Goodall says: "I love this book. It proves that every one of us, and every patch of soil, can make a difference. The way we connect with nature, with our food, and with each other can change the world." In a starred review, Booklist Magazine says: "Bright, vibrant, and buoyantly accessible, this effervescent celebration of the local food movement thrums with regional, national, and international implications." I think that's good
