Synopsis

Organic Roots -- Inspiration from the Founders of the Modern Organic Farming Movement by Priya Vincent

Eating is our strongest link to the earth that sustains us. The choices we make about what we eat are ones that have a powerful impact on the earth. This collection of writing from the founders of the modern organic farming movement explores the why and how of food production. Writing during the first half of the 20th century, these forward looking individuals saw the beginnings of modern industrial farming and the harm that it could inflict on the earth and the health of its people. They warned about unsound practices and the problems they created as well as providing a wealth of information about sustainable alternatives. They had much to say about nurturing our links with the earth through understanding how our choices either destroy or conserve the natural cycles on which our life depends. Hoping to reach everyone who cared about their food and how it was produced, these extracts are as relevant and inspiring today as they were when they were written.
