FOOD FOR ALL

Jun 16, 2013 Roberta rated it it was amazing
Philip Ackerman-Leist steps up to the Sustainable farming he lives, teaches and encourages others to grow into and support. In many ways, it is a textbook for serious farmers and an educational resource for anyone concerned about their food source and why it is important. Additionally, informative for communities planning to begin a community garden.
