5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Reclaiming Our Food": Stories That Need Telling 6 octobre 2011
Par BWC8T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Tanya Denckla Cobb has a gift for artfully documenting stories that desperately need to be told. Her latest book, "Reclaiming Our Food," is a collection of stories, insights, lessons in a food system gone awry and the inspirational groups and individuals who are developing creative solutions.

Cobb feels that there is something inherently democratic about the food movement. "It's democracy in action," she says, "people vote with their dollars, create control over an important part of their life, and take ownership in their community." Simply put: "Democracy is happening in our food system."

But Cobb's book is far from a rosy-tinted adulation of food projects. Rather, she describes it as "inspirational and practical." Inspirational, from the incredible stories of success and ingenuity. Practical, however, from Cobb's insistence on asking tough questions and distilling her interviews down to true "lessons learned."

In surveying the food system literature prior to writing the book, Cobb was surprised by the lack of a consolidated "lessons learned" text for food projects. In research, interviews, and site visits, Cobb's research team went below the surface, hearing about hardships and advice that food project veterans would give to future generations.

The features in the book have been meticulously documented, and Cobb is quick to reference the contributions of many book supporters, including seven students, U.Va. faculty, including Urban & Environmental Planning professor Tim Beatley, and numerous food experts from around the nation. Though the text is detailed, Cobb's storytelling weaves tales that are readable and illuminating, drawing upon research, as well as first-hand interviews and meetings with food projects from around the country.

"Reclaiming Our Food" is not a book to sit on the shelf, according to Cobb. Readers will want to come back, revisit their favorite stories, and take away ideas to apply in their own lives. As much as it is an inspiring story of hope, the book is meant as a handbook for food system innovators. Ways to get involved, like "crop mobs," are offered as unique ideas that can be applied in almost any community.

If you're depressed by what you've heard about the state of the food system, this book is your dose of optimism. If you're already inspired about food but just don't know where to go next, this book can get you thinking constructively. Practical, inspirational, and usable, "Reclaiming Our Food" is a significant contribution to food system literature. It tells the stories that need telling in a way that will create lasting impact beyond its pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirational with lessons for your own success! 4 novembre 2011
Par Diane Hoffmaster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a society, we have become far too uninvolved and unintereseted in the state of our nations's food supply...but that is slowly starting to change. My local Publix now has pictures of the farms and farmers where some of their produce is coming from. WHY? Because we are starting to need to see the face behind the food. Maybe we are concerned about food poisoning outbreaks or maybe we worry that in times of severe disaster we will be left with no way to feed ourselves. Whatever the cause, I found it interesting to note in the forward of this book that the number of farmer's markets has increased 114% over the last decade! And the number of people with home gardens has skyrocketed!

This book is a collection of stories put together to show you what CAN be done to change the way our food system works. There are stories of community gardens and community supported aggricultural programs. There are cases of individual people taking on local government policies that make raising your own animals for food next to impossible. And there are examples of non profit agencies that have worked hard to preserve the heritage and traditions of native people.

I really enjoyed the sections on Farm to School programs and Farm to Table Restaurants. It is a great idea to change the food you yourself are eating but to change the way an entire school district or restaurant chain looks at food is an amazing challenge. There are several success stories and hopefully more to come.

These are not just 'look what we did' stories! Each one has a section at the end that talks about 'lessons learned' so that if YOU want to try and follow in their footsteps, you will have an easier time than they did! And the photos included in this book are just beautiful! Full color pictures of people with their hands in the soil and smiles on their faces, so proud of the food they have grown with their own two hands.

While this book is certainly inspirational with all the success stories of organizations working for change, it is also very realistic. If you choose to start a similar program in your area, it won't be easy. A lot of people just don't care enough about the food they eat to make any changes. Government policies favor large scale farming organizations and financing in this economy is not easy to find. However, if no one ever bothers to try, than absolutely nothing will get done. That is why the subtitle mentions the that these changes are a grass roots effort...one small community at a time! The author includes several pages of resources at the back of the book to help you bring change to your own community.

This is a great resource for anyone concerned about the way our food supply works. Now, I just need to find enough people in my community to get our county government to change the silly rule that says I need 3 acres in order to own my own chickens...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the real deal 18 octobre 2011

there is a difference in the local food business -- as there is in every other business -- between those who are deeply committed to being a part of something they believe in, long-term, and those who are hopping on the bandwagon or just trying to co-opt a trend for their own benefit.

tanya denckla cobb is in the former category, and this book is a thorough, extensively-researched, deeply investigated exposé of the local food movement at the grassroots level.

for anyone trying to understand whether the local food movement is just a fad or whether it represents a true change in the way we eat, this book is well worth reading, following up on, and then using as a resource again and again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Plethora of Great Information! 14 octobre 2011
Par Denise Cassino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In this great handbook, Tanya Denckla Cobb takes us on a trip throughout the country to discover the many people and co-ops that are trying to return to local food products. She details the best parts of many community efforts giving us the pros and cons of their systems. I, for one, am tired of expensive tasteless produce that costs a fortune! I so remember the huge Beefsteak tomatoes sliced for dinner on summer nights when I was a kid and long for those days to return. I love to garden and this books is a wonderful resource for all of us who love fresh, delicious home-grown foods. It shows us that we can change things, one person at a time! Great book, Tanya!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gardening Good for Childhood Memories 29 octobre 2011
Par Cheri A. Lucking - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Reading Tanya Denckla Cobb's Book "RECLAIMING OUR FOOD" just brought back a rush of happy memories. The joy of gardening runs deep. My grandparents had a vegetable garden in our backyard. I remember going outside with my Grandpa and turning over the dirt to get ready for the planting season. Every year I knew what was coming 1st, Grandpa helping me get over my fear of worms! He'd pick up a worm, and place it in my hand explaining to me all the great things worms did for the garden. Squirming and screeching he'd calm my nerves and we'd get on with business. Once the garden grew Grandma would pick fresh produce for our supper every night. I married a man that loves to garden. My husband Peter author of Santa and The Little Teddy Bear: Bilbos Adventures Santa and The Little Teddy Bear 2011 INDIE Holiday Book Winner has created a lovely English Garden in our backyard. We grow our produce in pots on our deck away from the cute bunnies that have a place in our hearts and garden too. We are always amazed at what we can produce in this space on our deck in pots. No matter how large or small of space you have you can grow your own produce. I will us Tanya's book Reclaiming Our Food: How the Grassroots Food Movement Is Changing the Way We Eatas a guide and know that it will spark some great ideas. Great resource! No one should go hungry, back to basics.
