Katherine LeinerWhen writer Katherine Leiner took her daughter off to college and found her proverbial nest empty, she set off on a new journey, as many women her age are doing, finding the second half of life a time of opportunity and renewal.  Leiner's project took her across the country several times, discovering a new generation of farmers, cooks and activists leading the way in the food revolution.  The result is  Growing Roots: The New Generation of Sustainable Farmers, Cooks and Food Activists--part memoir, part recipe collection, part social history, and entirely lovely. As Michael Pollan says about the book: "Growing Roots introduces us to a few dozen young food pioneers through their words, photos and, even more usefully, through their recipes. Think of it as a community cookbook for the food movement."

Several of our favorite local food activists are profiled in the book, including Katrina Blair of Turtle Lake Refuge, the James family of James Ranch, raw food cook Samantha Johnson, Jennifer Craig from Durango Compost Company, Joslyn Erica from Hummingbird Herbals, and Nasha Winters from Namaste Health Center. We have invited them to join us for the event.
