About this book

The agrarian outlook encourages us to develop practices and policies that promote the health of land, community and culture. This collection features essays by leading agrarians, including Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, Wes Jackson, Gene Logsdon, Brian Donahue, Eric Freyfogle, and David Orr. These writers suggest how our society can take practical steps toward integrating soils, watersheds, forests, wildlife, urban areas, and human populations into one great system--a responsible flourishing of our world and culture.
