A collection of short essays that describe the success individuals and communities have created with local sustainability projects. It includes gardening, small farms, community supported agriculture (CSA), co-ops, farm to school programs, permaculture, and even community supported fisheries (CSF). The stories are inspiring and give much food for thought about local foods, local economy, the sense of community, and a return to our natural resources. Includes lots of references and resources for further research.
