By Arran on May 30 2012
Format: Paperback
Peter Ladner's book is a valuable tool for anyone interested in sustainable gardening, answering FAQ and providing excellent facts and research. This book should appeal to the new breed of urban city gardener, how important gardening is for personal health, enjoyment and transformation, as well as the greening of our cities. I believe it was Emerson who said, "I know of no ill my garden spade cannot heal." From one gardener to another. 'A

Amazing and insightful in so many ways March 2 2012
By Laura Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am not usually one to review books, it seems way too subjective to base whether you would buy a book on someone else s opinion but BUY THIS BOOK! I thought I was pretty well rounded in urban agriculture and this book was like a PhD in urban food systems. I cannot recommend it highly enough, from reexamining food deserts, cultural identities with food and agriculture, to urban incentives and governmental and nonprofit organizations. Mr. Ladner wrote clearly and concisely and above all- the man did his homework.

Inspiring Book May 28 2012
By Nancy Bradshaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What I love about this book is that it is full of postiive ideas about what is working in different places. Although I am not a city planner or muncipal person, I particularly found the ideas for schools and our communities useful.

It is a very good book. However, it needs a bit more references and I am not entirely convinced about some information there, but still a very good one. I recommend it

The Urban Food Revolution Nov. 2 2012
By P. Gerber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Peter Ladner's well researched, The Urban Food Revolution, not only explores some of the crises and challenges in the food industry today, but it invites and encourages the reader to become a grower. Whether a condo balcony of herbs, a patio of tomatoes, or a lawn converted to growing a few vegetables, all have the potential of connecting us closer to what we eat and is beginning to have more than an incremental effect on how we feed ourselves. Multiple examples from around the globe show that current technologies make urban faming economically viable. In community gardens people are discovering who their neighbours are and they are being reminded what carrots and tomatoes should taste like.
