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 think the mucus production blamed on milk is often a figment of people's imagination, or is caused by other factors and milk is a common and convenient scapegoat.  But that's me and my obnoxious opinion. 



For me, dairy in any form - fresh, raw or otherwise does have mucus causing properties. I only consume fresh, grass-fed milk products and can tell immediately the extra mucus after consumption. I have even cut them out for months (it takes 10 days to remove dairy from your system) only to reintroduce fermented raw dairy with the same results. At this point I am passed caring about the slight increase in mucus because I LOVE raw cheeses and fresh cream in my weekend coffee - real fermented sour cream, kefir, 24-hour cultured, raw yogurt and on and on. I consume no grains or starches in general......hmmmm.....
