A Small Farm Future : Making the Case for a Society Built Around Local Economies, Self-Provisioning, Agricultural Diversity and a Shared Ear
by Chris Smaje




Overview -

A modern classic of the new agrarianism

Chris Smaje...shows that the choice is clear. Either we have a small farm future, or we face collapse and extinction.--Vandana Shiva

Every young person should read this book.--Richard Heinberg

In a groundbreaking debut, farmer and social scientist Chris Smaje argues that organizing society around small-scale farming offers the soundest, sanest and most reasonable response to climate change and other crises of civilisation--and will yield humanity's best chance at survival.

Drawing on a vast range of sources from across a multitude of disciplines, A Small Farm Future analyses the complex forces that make societal change inevitable; explains how low-carbon, locally self-reliant agrarian communities can empower us to successfully confront these changes head on; and explores the pathways for delivering this vision politically.

Challenging both conventional wisdom and utopian blueprints, A Small Farm Future offers rigorous original analysis of wicked problems and hidden opportunities in a way that illuminates the path toward functional local economies, effective self-provisioning, agricultural diversity and a shared earth.

Perfect for readers of both Wendell Berry and Thomas Piketty, A Small Farm Future is a refreshing, new outlook on a way forward for society--and a vital resource for activists, students, policy makers, and anyone looking to enact change.
