Organic farming turned the gaze of millions of people, institutions, and governments backwards to look at the past as a source of guidance and wisdom. It changed our consumer habits and our ethics, demanding that we think about how our food is grown and the effect our daily habits have on nature. Based on newly discovered archives, it also reveals the towering personalities of Albert Howard and his second wife Louise as overlooked champions of the environmental movement."-- Provided by publisher.
