At Zoom
Categories: Arts

In celebration of Earth Day, we invite you to join The GardenWorks Food Readers Book Club's to discuss The Fate of Food by Amanda Little. A winner of the 2019 Nautilus Book Award, The Fate of Food takes us on a tour of the future. The journey is scary, exciting, and, ultimately, encouraging.
Climate models show that global crop production will decline every decade for the rest of this century due to drought, heat, and flooding. Water supplies are in jeopardy. Meanwhile, the world’s population is expected to grow another 30 percent by midcentury. So how, really, will we feed nine billion people sustainably in the coming decades?
The race to reinvent the global food system is on, and the challenge is twofold: We must solve the existing problems of industrial agriculture while also preparing for the pressures ahead. Through her interviews and adventures with farmers, scientists, activists, and engineers, Little tells the fascinating story of human innovation and explores new and old approaches to food production while charting the growth of a movement that could redefine sustainable food on a grand scale.
