Pushy June 28 2011
By Reilly O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book read more like a sermon on green living than it did a handbook on urban farming. The author was pretty pushy with his viewpoints. I would have enjoyed some more practical tips on implementing urban farming techniques instead of a lecture on the ills of modern society.

Environmental Activism instead of Garden-Focused June 17 2011
By Char Stanton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Page 10 includes a "The usual disclaimers" but then states: "I feel bound to explain that although I've been lucky enough to earn my keep for the last five years in urban argiculture, I don't farm for a living. The fields I cultivate are in polictics and the environment. I work through design, advocacy, community organizing and education. I don't grow crops for the market."

While I didn't expect the author to be a professional farmer I did expect more than a flag waving save the planet book by a community organizer. There are many books I've enjoyed which described how to develop a garden to help to sustain myself and my family and share with others but this book is really geared toward developing community gardens. This isn't a problem for me either, but it came across to me as over the top environmentalism with such phrases as "trashing the planet". If you are interested in that perspective, then you might like this book but I found it so judgemental I couldn't get to the information about growing an urgan garden, which I'm sure is in the back of the book somewhere. The term "activist" is not an understatement for this author. One of the "fourteen reasons to start a community garden" included "8. Enhance food democracy." This sounds way too socialist for me. I'm growing food in my garden to share with others but don't plan on forcing others to participate. It describes the fundamental principles of Seikatsu club as "Create a new lifestyle in order to protect environment and health. Stop passive and resource-wasteful lifestyles based on commercialism." I don't deny the negative impact of Monsanto, but I found this book really annoying. The subtitle "Ideas and designs for the new food revolution" also sounds like an accurate description and frankly, disconcerting. Perhaps I'll read the rest of it but I'll have to hold my nose, metaphorically speaking.
