You say you wanna food revolution…

http://www.cityfarmer.info/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/cover5.jpgMichael Levenston at the always-on city farmer website points out  five books on urban ag published in Canada more or less in the past year, with this comment:

“Beginning with Lorraine Johnson’s City Farmer in 2010 and including Jennifer Cockrall-King’s Food and the City coming out in February 2012, Canadian writers have produced five well-researched, well-written and fascinating books on urban agriculture. Not since the seminal Urban Agriculture: Food, Jobs, and Sustainable Cities was published over ten years ago has there been such attention paid to this global movement.”
