Sun. Soil. Water. Seed. These are the primordial ingredients for the most essential activity of all on earth: growing food. All of these elements are being changed dramatically under the pressures of corporate consolidation of the food chain, which has been accelerating just as climate change is profoundly altering the conditions for growing food. This book will discuss many concerns, including climate change, chronic drought in essential farm states, the persistence of the junk food culture, the proliferation of GMOs, and the alarming domination of the seed market.
