Locavore by Sarah Elton


What a fantastic document this is!  This book surveys the Canadians in various provinces who are working to create a sustainable food industry.  Each chapter deals with issues in a particular province regarding a particular commodity - and even the word commodity gets a refresher in this book.  Elton has completely refreshed the way I look at the food industry, and I've been fully aware of Canadian agriculture after having grown up on a dairy farm and working on one weekly.  I can imagine that some Canadians would find this book rather shocking.  I certainly hope to be able to pass it around.
