Blessing the Hands That Feed Us

Posted on: March 25, 2014

BlessingTheHandsThatFeedUs

In stark contrast to the misuse of farmland to produce biofuels presented in the current episode of TheCommonGoodPodcast, Vicki Robin presents a vision of locally produced food and strong community in Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us About Food, Community, and Our Place on Earth.

Hear my interview with Vicki on the current Simple Living Works! Podcast.

With Joe Dominguez, Vicki Robin wrote one of the most enduring, influential books to have come from the sustainable living movement, Your Money or Your Life.

Vicki has blogged about the hyperlocavore eating experience with YES! Magazine.

“Vicki Robin has helped millions of Americans reshape their lives in sound and beautiful ways, but this may be her most important project yet –and a crucial one for our tired planet, too!” – Bill McKibben, 350.org.

“Vicki Robin is a national treasure – a source of wisdom and uncommon sense now directed at the most basic of basics: how and what we eat and how that connects to our health, prosperity, and prospects … The ten-mile diet should be national policy!” – David Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics at Oberlin
