With the same clarity in her writing as in her photographs, Lori Eanes shows us a unique vision in which everyday people participate in the sustainable movement using creative solutions and modest means. This beautiful and inspiring book will show you the way to get started! Ramona Miller, Austin, Texas

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great inspiration and unique resources for urban garden & farming projects! 4 avril 2013
Par A-CM - Publié sur
I love this book! There is so much to be inspired from- such uniqueness & innovation in each of the 35 projects that Lori Eanes visited and photographed so beautifully. Each urban farmer interviewed shows how a dream like theirs is possible, by sharing stories,valuable advice and resources. So many had to jump through hoops of city ordinances & local politics, making themselves visionary activists by default.. these varied accounts from the muddy urban trenches, truly set the book aside from the average farm & garden project book!

A real pleasure to hold in your hands and to look at; I can almost smell the soil. When the photographs aren't downright beautiful, they're fun or sweet or exciting or poignant or vast or intimate. (Here are the details: Each chapter offers a well-designed portrait -- in words and pictures -- of contemporary urban farmer or farming family; smartly presented with a short well-written description that includes individually developed techniques from harvesting rainwater to rooftop bee keeping, and there's a list of really useful resources.) There are wonderful stories and cool approaches. I'm feeling informed and inspired. These very hip urban farmers engage in their labors of love with real insight, and Eanes does an perfect job of conveying both their affection and the intelligence without even a whiff of pretension or hipster self-importance. This Manhattanite heartily recommends it for personal use and the perfect present. Alison Matika NYC.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting book 30 novembre 2013
Par from Montana - Publié sur
My favorite thing about this book was the many ideas that were presented around the topic of eating and living local. Each idea or vignette about someone with their locavore lifestyle showcased a unique way those individuals accomplished living / eating local. Each vignette was accompanied by internet links that would lead to further resources. I did not try all the links but at least one of them was no good, perhaps as a result of overuse, and the fact it was a controversial topic. I admired all the individuals and families featured in the book, because I believe that living local is good for the earth. However I doubt if I will join them anytime soon because maybe I am just not the earthy type. I grew up around and on small farms and know the realities of manure smell, and being tied down because of your vegetables and livestock. I did find a couple of ideas that I can use in my urban lifestyle however which will further the cause of living local but would not require me to go whole hog.

There was one comment in the book that the biggest barrier to urban farming is the price of real estate. I appreciated that realistic statement very much. I also appreciated the fact the author stayed away from ethical statements and instead would describe the beliefs of the individuals involved. Although it was not meant to be a science book I personally would have appreciated more in depth discussion of soil science as it related to the soil practices of the individuals and also more of the realities in the city such as rats, raccoons, etc., and also whether the practices that were featured in each location would transfer to another location due to very real differences in climate and soil. Also there was no mention of how foreign plants might be hazardous to local plants by spreading or pollination. Although I benefited from reading the book I did feel it somewhat over-glamorized the topic.

This book is a colorful glimpse of urban backyard food production, from Northern California to British Columbia. The 35 families/individuals featured have different motivations and approaches, but all are innovative and creative in the use of small space. Ms.Eanes photos and text are engaging, entertaining and informative. Through these pages we visit lush gardens, chicken coops, goat pens, bee hives and more. I found the side-bars and resource lists in each chapter to be helpful. Having read this book I feel inspired. As spring arrives here in the Midwest, I am eager to break out the gardening tools and start digging in the dirt.
