Not as much text as I thought, but beautiful photos and profiles of the farms pictured. A nice coffee table book.

Great review of city farming. Bought it because my son is in the chicago section and then we went to Cleveland and saw one there so will read up on that one too.

Not only is the book beautiful, but it quickly demonstrates that from coast-to-coast people are making local food a reality on their own terms. Everywhere.

Rich is a surefire and exceptional writer. As she journeys to urban farms, you feel part of it, and better yet, want to become part of "it": this mushrooming movement of grow your own food and feed your community too. Highly recommend!

I saw this in the bookstore and started drooling, then saw the sticker price. Yikes. Happened to look on Amazon and saw a much lower price and could not resist.

Aside from being a very nice book, with great photgraphy, it is well written and engaging. It gave me a lot of ideas and more than a little inspiration.

I highly reccomend it for the coffee table or waiting room. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

New field, urban agriculture. Very important for the future of both agriculture and the cities, especially as we try to use less fossil fuel.
