Book Reviews for the Avid Reader

I love a good read; it’s one of my favorite pastimes. Who doesn’t love to curl up with a steaming cup of coffee or tea and a good book? On the subject of organics, there are many publications to be found from cookbooks to eye-opening non-fiction covering just about every subject imaginable. From time to time, we’ll review a few of our favorite books on organics here.

Ever since Rachel Carson’s landmark book Silent Spring, the subject of pesticides has been fraught with controversy. She became singularly famous for being the first advocate for a pesticide-free future. Whether you agree with this or not, it is one of the arguments made in favor of organic food. Since then, there have been many authors who have expounded on the benefits of organic. We feel that they have a compelling case. After all, chemical fertilizers and pesticides have been implicated in everything from algae bloom to cancer. We’ll leave it to you, dear readers, to decide for yourselves.
