LIFTING THE YOKE: Local Solutions to America's Farm and Food Crisis

Ron Krupp, author of The Woodchuck's Guide to Gardening and a Vermont Public Radio Garden and Farm Commentator for the past 8 years, announces the publication of his new book, Lifting The Yoke.  This book deals with many of the farm and food issues that are in the news on a daily basis, such as globalization, hunger and obesity, while searching for local, sustainable solutions. 

The foreword to the book is by Bill McKibben and there are testimonials by Meghan Sheridan of the Vermont Fresh Network, Roger Allbee, the Vermont Secretary of Agriculture, Dorigen Keeney of the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger and Vern Grubinger of the Extension Service.
 
Ron has been involved with farm and food issues for the past 35 years - He started the Brattleboro Farmers' Market in the early 70s, coordinated the Tommy Thompson Community Garden in the Intervale for 15 years and published the Green Mountain Farmer in the early 1980s.
