Call of the Reed Warbler
Fully updated and featuring a new author's note addressing recent, major progress in regenerative agriculture.
Call of the Reed Warbler will change the way we farm, eat and think about food. In this ground-breaking book Charles Massy explores regenerative agriculture and the vital connection between our soil and our health.
Using his personal farming experience as a touchstone, he tells the real story behind industrial agriculture and the global profit-obsessed corporations driving it. He shows how innovative farmers are finding a new way, regenerating their land and witnessing astounding transformations. Evocatively, he captures what it truly means to live in connection with the land.
For farmer, backyard gardener, food buyer, health worker, policy maker and public leader alike, Call of the Reed Warbler offers a clear vision of a sustainable future for our food supply, our landscape, our health and our Earth. It offers hope and a powerful affirmation of our potential for change. Now is the time for a grassroots revolution.
