Add information to books relevant to community farming, organic gardening, eating sustainably, etc.



Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening

By Maria Rodale, et al. Published by DK ADULT (April 18, 2005).


Everything you ever needed to know about gardening organically! This book is a basic, introductory guide to all things organic. From vegetable gardens to landscaping with stone and flowers, this book provides a light introduction to just about everything. It covers soil, watering, weeding, organic lawn care, mulching, and even as a plant-by-plant growing guide in the appendices. A very useful book!


From a CSA member who loved participating last year.


Chesman, A. 2005. The Garden-Fresh Vegetable Cookbook. North Adams, MA, Storey.


Last summer I was gifted this cookbook by my partner who wanted me to cook for her. It is organzied to follow the harvest season and it helped me to more fully appreciate the CSA. It was written by an author who describes herself as a "cook who gardens". It is available through interlibrary loan in the Minuteman system.




Pollan, Michael The Omnivore's Dilemma


This book blew me away. Pollan traces the history of 4 meals, backwards from food on the table through the food chain, contrasting a fast food meal, a meal cooked from ingredients purchased at Whole Foods, a meal made from locally obtained sustainably farmed food, and a meal from foods hunters and/or gathered. This book transformed the way I think about food and its relationship to the natural world and to agribusiness. A must read. ~ Lisa Cohen
