A lovely book. Yes, it talks about the environment, the economy, and all that other important stuff. But this book stands out because of McKibben's deep and persistent belief in the possibility of community and the potential of local economies to solve so many of our world's current problems. That sounds boring. But I promise it really isn't--an easy read, important info, that moves quickly. Don't miss it.

Doug Sara,

I really enjoyed Bill McKibben's book, especially since he mentions one of the people who was an intern at our CSA (CSG at Genesis Farm). It was nice to read about his farm in the Adirondack mountains and that he still juggles! :)Doug

Sara What a nice connection! Yes, the juggling thing is fun too. :)

Doug Sara,

I do remember him as an intern juggling and riding his Unicycle at Genesis Farm. We do miss him. My daughter, Hannah, will be an intern this year. In fact she starts on April 1, next week. She is quite excited. Hannah has worked as a volunteer for the last five years, so she is familiar with the routine. We will be heading down to the house where the interns stay in order to paint her room sometime this week. Thankfully, it is only 45 min. away.
