"Under pavement. Under a shimmering crust of broken glass and weeds, the dark earth endures. We are dispossessed of our most basic human right—to cultivate the land. But in cities across North America, people are taking back this right and resisting corporate control of food and livelihood. Here are some of their stories."
From the Motor City to Cuba, Oakland to the Bronx, here are the tales of digging for revolution in the belly of the beast, of radical rural organizing, guerilla gardening, and community development. All in a dense, oversized, copiously illustrated tome. A veritable feast. Now in a newly expanded and updated lavish second edition featuring the best of The Guerilla Graywater Girls Guide to Water, urban beekeeping, medicinal herbs, balcony gardening, and an illustrated guide to urban perma-culture. "...an inspirational compilation that encourages people to transform cities into greener places." —Utne Reader
