Growing a Garden City by Jeremy N. Smith (2010)

How farmers, first graders, counselors, troubled teens, foodies, a homeless shelter chef, single mothers, and more are transforming themselves and their neighborhoods through the intersection of local agriculture and community.

Using striking color photographs and compelling personal narratives, Growing a Garden City shares the stories behind one of the country’s most remote yet far-reaching experiments in community-based agriculture. The surprising, inspiring result proves it’s possible to eat welllocally even if you don’t live on a rural homestead or in an elite urban area.

This book demonstrates that growing food, the most ancient of occupations, can address very modern social problems, from poverty and addiction to the sense of disconnection that is so destructive a part of contemporary life.
