Organic Revolutionary: A Memoir of the Movement for Real Food, Planetary Healing, and Human Liberation
by Grace Gershuny, 262 pages, 6x9, softcover. At a dinner party, sometimes one has the good fortune to be seated next to the person who knows the dirt on everyone else there and isn’t afraid to talk. The tight-knit world of organic agriculture was even more so back in 1973 when Gershuny headed for the hills of Vermont and quickly imbedded herself in the organic community there. Gershuny had a hand in the founding of NOFA, the founding of the OTA, the development of the NOP, and more; she speaks of these important developments, and of the other organic movers and shakers who helped to mold them, from a deeply personal perspective. But the book transcends gossip column status to ask important ongoing questions about the organic movement. Should the organic standards be consumer-driven or farmer-driven? Should they focus on the source of inputs or on the ecological soundness of the practices? Can organic agriculture achieve mainstream status without hanging its principles out to dry? Whether you like Gershuny’s answers to these questions or not, you’ll enjoy the conversation. -Alice Coyle
