No Farms, No Food: Uniting Farmers and Environmentalists to Transform American Agriculture
A new book by author Don Stuart — available now from Island Press !
Since 1980, American Farmland Trust has been bringing farmers and environmentalists together to work for healthy land and a healthy food system. “No Farms, No Food” traces the development of this powerful coalition, responsible for landmark achievements in farmland preservation.
With leadership from AFT, the coalition drove through Congress the first Conservation Title in the history of the U.S. Farm Bill, oversaw the development of agriculture conservation easement programs throughout the country, and continues to develop innovative approaches to sustainable agriculture.
“No Farms, No Food” is both an inspiring history of agricultural conservation and a practical guide to creating an effective advocacy organization. This is an essential read for everyone who cares about the future of our food, farms, and environment.
