The program, spearheaded by VES Land Trust, is an effort to explore the history and future of Eastern Shore agriculture. The book “Reclaiming Our Food” was published in October 2011. It is getting major national attention and was featured in the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville in March.
The book and lecture is about the relationship between food, tradition, and community; and it profiles more than 50 community food projects and initiatives across the country, from inner city Philadelphia to the Navajo Indian Reservation; from roof-top bee-keeping in Chicago to permaculture experiments in Virginia to community supported fisheries in Beaufort N.C.
