Organic Revolutionary : A Memoir of the Movement for Real Food, Planetary Healing, and Human Liberation by Grace Gershuny


 
A true elder of organic farming, this author/farmer shares tales from the movement's early days, reflecting on its past and discussing its future. Having served in the USDA when the organic rules were written, Grace Gershuny has a unique vantage point on this process, the end result, and the contradictions and prospects that face the organic movement going forward. It's the story of how the organic revolution became rooted well before the federal government cared to notice, and the personal, political, and practical struggles that ensued in the heroic effort to move it beyond farmers' markets and into supermarkets. Organic Revolutionary challenges both the conventional wisdom of "agribusiness as usual" and the alternative wisdom of organic as an assurance of purity or a "gold standard," and raises questions that are not addressed elsewhere.
