My household has completely changed because of this book. I’ve always been a Barbara Kingsolver fan, so I bought the book without really knowing what I was in for. In short it’s about her family’s journey of healing and reconnecting with the world around them by removing themselves from the commercial food system and growing their own food for a year. Why would you want to do that? What is wrong with our food? If you read this book you will discover so many answers to questions you maybe didn’t even realize you should be asking and hopefully you will find ways to change and improve your life and share it with the people you care about. Even if you can’t grow your own food (like me, in NYC with not even a balcony) you can still make significant changes.
