9780062267634: Local: The New Face of Food and Farming in America

Combining stunning visuals with insights and a lexicon of more than 200 agricultural terms explained by today’s thought leaders, Local showcases and explores one of the most popular environmental trends: rebuilding local food movements.

When Douglas Gayeton took his young daughter to see the salmon run—a favorite pastime growing up in Northern California—he was devastated to find that a combination of urban sprawl, land mismanagement, and pollution had decimated the fish population.

The discovery set Gayeton on a journey in search of sustainable solutions. He traveled the country, photographing and learning the new language of sustainability from today’s foremost practitioners in food and farming, including Alice Waters, Wes Jackson, Carl Safina, Temple Grandin, Paul Stamets, Patrick Holden, Barton Seaver, Vandana Shiva, Dr. Elaine Ingham, and Joel Salatin, as well as everyday farmers, fishermen, and dairy producers.

Local: The New Face of Food and Farming blends their insights with stunning collage-like information artworks and Gayeton’s Lexicon of Sustainability, which defines and de-mystifies hundreds of terms like “food miles,” “locavore,” “organic,” “grassfed” and “antibiotic free.” In doing so, Gayeton helps people understand what they mean for their lives. He also includes “eco tips” and other information on how the sustainable movement affects us all every day.

Local: The New Face of Food and Farming in America educates, engages, and inspires people to pay closer attention to how they eat, what they buy, and where their responsibility begins for creating a healthier, safer food system in America.

From the Back Cover:

Living sustainably isn't a choice; it's a necessity.

ur current way of producing food isn't healthy for us or our planet. Paying closer attention to how we eat, what food we buy, and where we make these purchases are important first attempts in creating a better food system. Local: The New Face of Food and Farming in America discusses the steps we can take toward sustainable living by explaining the vocabulary and principles of this movement.

Douglas Gayeton—a cofounder of the Lexicon of Sustainability and Project Localize—has traveled the country, interviewing and photographing farmers, fishermen, dairy producers, and educators to better understand American food and farming today. The stories of their groundbreaking work, along with Gayeton's stunning collagelike photography, are inspirational in their advocacy for change. Local not only demystifies today's food-making processes and its basic terms but also can help everyone make changes in their lives that will lead to healthier, safer, and more sustainable food production for generations to come.
