Sarah Elton was interviewed on Fresh Air this morning. It all started for her when her child brought home a birthday party cookie that was labelled Made in China. As she points out, something is seriously wrong with the world's food system when baked goods are imported from the other side of the planet.

I expected this book to give tips and tricks on how to become a locavore. Instead it is filled with stories from Canadian farmers to urbanites about how they are dealing with the challenges of global warming, rising food costs, etc.
Not what I was looking for but an interesting read none the less.

A reasonable summary of the ideas behind "gardening on the backside of the calendar".
