A Subversive Plot: How to Grow a Revolution in Your Own Backyard

Roger Dorion is plotting a revolution.

He’s organizing Kitchen Gardeners; a special breed of subversives. They are self-reliant seekers of “the Good Life” who have understood the central role that home-grown and home- cooked food plays in one’s well-being. By seeking an active role in their own sustenance, they are modern-day participants in humankind’s oldest and most basic activity, offering a critical link to our past and positive vision for our future.

They are a little bit subversive and a little bit revolutionary.

Roger Doiron is founding director of Kitchen Gardeners International, a network of people taking a hands-on approach to re-localizing the global food supply. Doiron is an advocate for new policies, technologies, investments, and fresh thinking about the role of gardens. His successful petition to replant a kitchen garden at the White House attracted broad international recognition.
