Let's Talk

Do you want to be informed and inspired about issues that matter? If so, we invite you to check out this new selection from Let's Talk, Sierra's book and film club.

Sierra's May/June 2008 Let's Talk selection:

Edible Estates
A book by Fritz Haeg

Starting in 2005, architect and designer Fritz Haeg commissioned families in California, New Jersey, and Kansas to rip out their lawns and grow vegetables in their front yards. Edible Estates is a treatise against grass, which at 30 million acres is the United States' largest irrigated crop. It also follows the suburban dissidents who dug under the inquisitive gaze of neighbors and found joy in curbside tomatoes.
