  • SCRATCH: HOME COOKING FOR EVERYONE MADE SIMPLE, FUN, AND TOTALLY DELICIOUS

    Maria Rodale was raised on real food. She doesn’t think of eating homemade, from-scratch meals as part of a trend or movement; it has always been her life. Raised in a family of farmers, bakers, chefs, gardeners, and publishers, Rodale is used to growing, cooking, reading and writing about, and eating organic, delicious food. And now, for the first time ever, she’s sharing her tried-and-true family recipes.

    Scratch is full of comfort food recipes that aren’t focused on any one healthy trend, but are instead innately healthy, because Rodale inspires you to return to your kitchen and cook with real, organic food. Recipes like Pasta Fagiole, Maria’s Fried Chicken, and Lamb & Barley Soup will be crowd pleasers for sure, but Rodale throws in some unique-to-the-family recipes that are going to delight as well, such as her Pennsylvania Dutch Dandelion Salad with Bacon Dressing, Ardie’s Pasties, and Homemade Hoppin’ John (a black-eyed pea stew made with smoked turkey or ham).

    Besides sharing her family’s favorite recipes, Rodale’s book also gives you a peek into her life as a Rodale, with personal family portraits and stories. With this cookbook, you can eat like the Rodale family every night of the week with delicious food to make at home, from scratch. It’s naturally healthy, bacon included.

  • SEED LIBRARIES

    Historically, seed companies were generally small, often family-run businesses. Because they were regionally based, they could focus on varieties well-suited to the local environment. A Pacific Northwest company, for example, would specialize in different cultivars than a company based in the Southeast. However, the absorption of these small, independent seed businesses into large multinationals – combined with the advancement of biotechnology, resulting in hybrids and genetically modified seeds – has led to a serious loss of genetic diversity. The public is now at the mercy of the corporations who control the seeds.

    In the past few years, gardeners have realized the inherent danger in this situation. A growing movement is striving to preserve and expand our stock of heritage and heirloom varieties through seed saving and sharing opportunities. Seed Libraries is a practical guide to saving seeds through community programs, including:

    • Step-by-step instructions for setting up a seed library
    • A wealth of ideas to help attract patrons and keep the momentum going
    • Examples of existing libraries and other types of seed saving partnerships

    Whoever controls the seeds controls the food supply. By empowering communities to preserve and protect the genetic diversity of their harvest, Seed Libraries is the first step toward reclaiming our self-reliance … while enhancing food security and ensuring that the future of food is healthy, vibrant, tasty and nutritious.
