I’ve heard this woman speak on local food and seed saving a few times. She is an activist in every sense of the word including being arrested for protesting land grabs and environmental disasters. This book is on my Christmas list for many reasons, mostly because I believe in the cultivation of heritage seeds which have almost been bred into extinction save for a few people, like Janisse, who have taken up the cross for these plants. Historic preservation is a general term which includes buildings, art, literature, oral history AND our food.
