The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture by
Call Number: HD1761 .B47 2015
Publication Date: 2015
Since its publication in 1977,The Unsettling of America has been recognized as a classic of American letters. In it, Wendell Berry argues that good farming is a cultural and spiritual discipline. Today's agribusiness, however, takes farming out of its cultural context and away from families. As a result, we as a nation are more estranged from the land--from the intimate knowledge, love, and care of it. Sadly, his arguments and observations are more relevant than ever. Although "this book has not had the happy fate of being proved wrong," Berry writes, there are people working "to make something comely and enduring of our life on this earth." Wendell Berry is one of those people, writing and working, as ever, with passion, eloquence, and conviction.

But, fortunately, he is also a poet of responsibility. He makes one believe that the good life may not only be harder than what we're used to but sweeter as well." âe*The New York Review of Books InHome Economics, Berry explores this process and continues to discuss what it means to make oneself "responsibly at home." As he argues, a measure of the health of the planet is economics--the health of its households.

Call Number: TX353 .C53 2017
Publication Date: 2017
Food Forever is more than just another story about the impact of over-exploitation of resources and climate change on the food chain. Dutch chef Lars Charas met with more than sixty scientists and chefs who accepted to share their knowledge and to look for solutions to the challenge of feeding 10 billion people around the globe without damaging our planet. The book offers facts about current resources, ways to cope with a demand that is set to double within 50 years, new ideas about ingredients, and guidelines to enjoy healthy and sustainable food. Recipes with alternative ingredients, which are already offered at top restaurants, exemplify what tomorrow’s nutritional habits could be. Stories about food and sustainability are seldom as practical, multi-cultural and solution-based as in this book.
