“This is a Sand County Almanac of agriculture, a Walden of loam and tilth, a paradigm-bending journey into the principles that guide the life beneath our feet and thus the life that nourishes us.”     -PAUL HAWKEN, author of The Ecology of Commerce and Natural Capitalism
“Brilliant, well researched, eloquent, and deeply hopeful.”     -DENIS HAYES, founder of Earth Day

Highly recommended reading.”     -NICOLETTE HAHN NIMAN, author of Defending Beef and Righteous Porkchop
“Being a longtime ‘doom bat’ regarding the fate of the natural world, I was given hope by Growing a Revolution that there is a real possibility of revolutionizing agriculture with the result of growing more food, employing people,
and putting carbon back into the ground.”     -YVON CHOUINARD, founder of Patagonia
