In A Bushel�s Worth: An Ecobiography, Kayann Short, Ph.D., describes one community�s commitment to keeping a farm a farm as she connects memories of her grandparents� farms in North Dakota with stories of Stonebridge Farm, her century-old organic farm on Colorado�s Front Range. By looking back to her grandparents� homesteads in North Dakota, Short draws lessons about farms as what she calls �cultivated space� where humans and nature form a fertile alliance. Published by Torrey House Press and a silver Nautilus winner in Green Living and Sustainability, A Bushel�s Worth is not a tale of leaving city ways behind, but rather a memoir of reunion with a family�s farming past and a call for the preservation of local farmland today. This wonderful book would be perfect for book clubs too. See more at abushelsworth.com. Copy signed by author. LH price includes free shipping.
"Many small-scale farmers will recognize aspects of their own stories in Kayann Short's book, and non-farmers will learn what it means to 'place our lives alongside the land,'� as Short and her family have done. In rich, thoughtful prose, Short paints for readers picture after picture of the farming life . . . and what it means to place our lives alongside the land." --Erin Barnett, Director, Local Harvest
"A loving natural history of a farm, a marriage, and a way of life that has changed interestingly and dramatically over just a few generations." --Jane Shellenberger, author, Organic Gardener's Companion
