Food and The City:
Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution
Jennifer Cockrall-King is a Canadian food journalist. In this book she critiques the current state of our food and describes the current urban food agriculture as a response to that crisis. Cities increase their food security and quality by growing food within their own boundaries. She gives an overview of the movement as a whole and then provides specific case studies of the movement in Paris, London, Southern California, Vancouver, Toronto, Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, and Cuba. She writes well with passion, resulting in an interesting, easy to read book.
