Theologian, academic, and third-generation organic farmer Frederick L. Kirschenmann is a celebrated agricultural thinker. In the last thirty years he has tirelessly promoted the principles of sustainability and has become a legend in his own right. Cultivating an Ecological Conscience: Essays from a Farmer Philosopher documents Kirschenmann's evolution and his lifelong contributions to the new agrarianism in a collection of his greatest writings on farming, philosophy, and sustainability. Working closely with agricultural economist and editor Constance L. Falk, Kirschenmann recounts his intellectual and spiritual journey. In a unique blend of personal history, philosophical discourse, spiritual ruminations, and practical advice, Kirschenmann interweaves his insights with discussion of contemporary agrarian topics. This collection serves as an invaluable resource to agrarian scholars and introduces readers to an agricultural pioneer whose work has profoundly influenced modern thinking about food.

Jim VanDerPol farms and writes in a western Minnesota world very different from the one in which he was raised in the 1950s and 1960s. The small, diversified farms and tight-knit communities of his youth have been replaced by town jobs and gigantic equipment operating on huge tracts of land. The culture of the agriculture that Jim knew is almost entirely gone, and he wants it back. Through his farming, alternative marketing, writing and work with sustainable agriculture groups in Minnesota, Jim is making an important contribution toward efforts to resurrect that culture. Where others simply pine for days of yore and lament what has happened, in Conversations with the Land Jim offers a clear and down-to-earth vision for what each of us can do to return agriculture to something that can do better by the environment, the people who live within it, and even the nation as a whole. Those who are concerned that we have moved too far from the land will find much to think about - and draw inspiration from - in the pages of this book. Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics This is a book of personal reflections on farms, farming, and farmers. VanDerPol talks about the weather, people and communities, and better ways to produce food and to live. From his base in Minnesota, he gives his thoughts about the way agriculture has changed and what can be done to make it better. John Ikerd, author of Sustainable Capitalism Jim Van Der Pol has the talent as a writer to share his unique wisdom through compelling stories of life on a real family farm. Frederick Kirschenmann, author of Cultivating an Ecological Conscience: Essays From a Farmer-Philosopher Anyone who wants to experience what living a life of wellbeing looks like in the real world, as well as get a clear understanding of the many things that stand in the way of living such a life for most of us, should read this engaging book. Shannon Hayes, author of Radical Homemakers Jim is an authentic voice from our movement. Plain spoken and poetic, a read through these essays will bring urbanites closer to the land, and farmers more deeply to their roots. I love this book. David Kline, editor of Farming Magazine These essays show us that agri-culture and agri-business are two entirely different worlds. This is a book about good farming. Patricia Larenas, author on eatdrinkbetter.com "Jim VanDerPol is a farmer- writer who writes with clarity and skill about how agribusiness has changed not only our relationship with the land and our food, but how our sense of community and connection to one another has been displaced as well."

"Global Eating Disorder is one of the most comprehensive and practical analyses of what will soon become dysfunctional in our global industrialized food system given the challenges ahead of us---end of cheap energy, depleting natural resources and impacts of climate change. This is a must read for anyone interested in getting a head start preparing for the changes ahead." "-Frederick Kirschenmann, author of Cultivating an Ecological Conscience: Essays From a Farmer Philosopher." "The food in your fridge is just the tip of the iceberg. Gunnar Rundgren takes you behind the scene of global food production and shows you who pulls the strings in the agricultural system. He doesn't mince his words but offers crystal clear argumentation why things are going wrong in the food chain. After reading this book you will think twice how to fill your shopping basket. A must read for all who want to catch a glimpse of the future of our food!" "-Franz Fischler, President of the European Forum Alpbach and former EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Fisheries." "Rundgren's book has global reach and vision, and deserves a global audience." "-Frederick Kaufman, food journalist and author of Bet the Farm." Consumer choice is a myth when it comes to food. What we eat is determined by our ancestors' choices, by corporations and governments and by three mega trends: the use of fossil fuels in all parts of the food chain; the commercialization of most part of our lives; and by growth of populations and where they live. Global Eating Disorder explains how and why the very act of eating has been transformed from one of bonding to that of consumption for the sake of consumption. Industrial food and farming has been very successful in producing more and cheaper food. But the practices have wreaked havoc in nature and the food system squanders its own resource base, including the most precious resource on the planet - the soil. In Global Eating Disorder, Gunnar Rundgren points towards planetary stewardship, co-production and regeneration of resources embedded in new social and economic relationships as the way ahead. He tells the story with a mix of a historical perspective, comprehensive data and real-life experiences from all continents of the world.
