Here's the perfect introduction for people who want to go organic but don't know how to get started -- or aren't sure they know what "organic" means. At last, environmental consciousness and organic living have moved beyond mere good intentions to become workable lifestyle choices. The author reviews the history of organic practices, starting in the 1930s with a certain Mister Kellogg (of cereal fame), who was then thought to be eccentric, and continuing to the present day. She goes on to discuss:
-- Why go organic?
-- Buying organic foods and what the many certification symbols mean
-- Growing organic food, with tips on choosing vigorous plants
-- Cooking organic
-- Teaching kids the benefits of organic living... and much more A concluding chapter points out the limitations of going organic and offers a few simple rules to live by. The book features approximately 250 illustrations, all in full color.
