On the local news tonight they interviewed someone who wrote a book entitled "Growing A Garden City".

It sounded like a great read anyone who visits this forum might want to check out.

It was a man named Jeremy Smith, a local guy, promoting his book pretty much.  The book itself is about the community gardens in Missoula and sustainability.

It is a story and photos all about Garden City Harvest - saw it in print tonight. Will have my review copy next week.
"Growing a Garden City" Release Party
***Thursday, October 7th, at 7 p.m.***
downtown at the Roxy Theater (718 S. Higgins Ave)

Featuring 15 main characters--a farmer, a foodie, a troubled teen, a homeless shelter chef, a single mother, an entire first grade class, and more--"Growing a Garden City" tells the surprising, inspiring true story of one of the country's most far-reaching experiments in urban transformation through local food: Missoula's own Garden City Harvest.

Woven into the narrative are an introduction by Bill McKibben, 80 color photographs, and seven "How It Works" sections so people can emulate and build on the achievements in the book wherever they call home.

Jane Goodall says: "I love this book. It proves that every one of us, and every patch of soil, can make a difference. The way we connect with nature, with our food, and with each other can change the world." In a starred review, Booklist Magazine says: "Bright, vibrant, and buoyantly accessible, this effervescent celebration of the local food movement thrums with regional, national, and international implications." I think that's good

I have seen the book, Growing a Garden City by Jeremy N. Smith.  Smith is a local author, and a talented one.  He tells the story of how Missoula has grown a thriving local food economy - one where everyone has the option to eat locally.  Through this book, Missoula has become a national model for food systems.  One of the best parts is the 80+ beautiful photographs by local photographers Sepp Johnson and Chad Harder.  The Booklist review was glowing, and Jane Goodalls' too.  Introduction by Bill McKibben.

But don't take my word for it, as Kristen posted, pick up your own copy next week at the book release party and signing at the Roxy, 7 pm, Thurs, October 7th. 
 
He was giving me directions and I was powerless to resist. I cannot resist this tiny ad:
