Product Description
Demonstrating that humanity faces an imminent and prolonged global food crisis, Michael Brownlee issues a clarion call and manifesto for a revolutionary movement to localize the global food supply. He lays out a practical guide for those who hope to navigate the challenging process of shaping the local or regional food system, providing a roadmap for embarking on the process of righting the profoundly unsustainable and already-failing global industrialized food system. Written to inform, inspire, and empower anyone—farmers or ranchers, community gardeners, aspiring food entrepreneurs, supply chain venturers, commercial food buyers, restaurateurs, investors, community food activists, non-profit agencies, policy makers, or local government leaders—who hopes to be a catalyst for change, this book provides a blueprint for economic action, with specific suggestions that make the process more conscious and deliberate.

Brownlee, cofounder of the nonprofit Local Food Shift Group, maps out the underlying process of food localization and outlines the route that communities, regions, and foodsheds often follow in their efforts to take control of food production and distribution. By sharing the strategies that have proven successful, he charts a practical path forward while indicating approaches that otherwise might be invisible and unexplored. Stories and interviews illustrate how food localization is happening on the ground and in the field. Essays and thought-pieces explore some of the challenging ethical, moral, economic, and social dilemmas and thresholds that might arise as the local food shift develops. For anyone who wants to understand, in concrete terms, the unique challenges and extraordinary opportunities that present themselves as we address one of the most urgent issues of our time, The Local Food Revolution is an indispensable resource.
Product Description
You were born to lead the local food revolution!
If you want the local food movement to grow exponentially in your community, you must take your place on the front lines. You know that localizing the food supply is an urgent priority, but it seems that no one else is speaking or acting this way. To ignite a new level of impact, effectiveness, and scale, you need to master the seven revolutionary steps of building a regional foodshed—but you can’t make it happen. This book is for people who are serious about local food systems. In it, author Michael Brownlee, the foodshed catalyst, teaches you:
◆The truth about the devastating impacts of the industrial food system
◆Why the local food movement has been failing
◆The reason you are called to this work, and why you have been resisting
◆How food localization can bring healing, restoration, and regeneration to your community
◆How regional foodsheds will become our society’s lifeboats to a regenerative future
◆How collaboration and cooperation are the keys to the local food revolution
This book is as incendiary as Thomas Paine’s famous “Common Sense” pamphlet was in 1776, and holds the keys to the future of our democracy.
