CULTIVATING CHANGE is an invigorating tour of garden projects in both the United States and Canada. It tells the story of how growing and cooking food can be a remarkable avenue to social change. In San Francisco, for instance, Catherine Sneed's Garden Project has transformed the lives of members of poor inner city communities and created bonds between community members and the police force. In Canada, organizations like Farm Folk, City Folk and First Harvest have helped put meaning back in the lives of people living in cities by reconnecting them to food and the land. Through gardening, organic food production, and cooking, people learn to nurture life and see their hard work turn into something positive. They learn respect for food, for life, and most importantly for themselves.
