Great book, tied together all the people involved or currently working in the garden! I loved reading their stories, how things have worked out, how to plan and hope for something similiar in our area.

One of my favorite community building books for 2011! Jeremy N Smith is amazing and the story should inspire big and small towns all across the US and beyond. Its a great model for building community with food and agriculture on any scale. Must Read!
