Consulting the Genius of the Place
An Ecological Approach to a New Agriculture
Other Editions of This Title:
Jackson believes the time is right to do away with annual monoculture grains, which are vulnerable to national security threats and are partly responsible for the explosion in our healthcare costs. Soil erosion and the poisons polluting our water and air--all associated with agriculture from its beginnings--foretell a population with its natural fertility greatly destroyed.
In this eloquent and timely volume, Jackson argues we must look to nature itself to lead us out of the mess we've made. The natural ecosystems will tell us, if we listen, what should happen to the future of food.
