On a twenty-acre farm in Iowa in 1995, Angela Tedesco planted the seeds of Turtle Farm, introducing Community Supported Agriculture to Iowa. In Finding Turtle Farm, Tedesco recounts this adventure in all its down-and-dirty work and wonder, from plan and plot to harvest, in an ultimately hopeful account of what it means to meet the most basic of human needs.
In this era of weather whiplash called climate change, Angela Tedesco provides us a clear path forward. Through vivid storytelling and keen observation, she details the joys and the challenges of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farmer, who harvests an amazing bounty of food from tiny seeds. After reading this book, you'll want to strengthen your commitment to those who grow healthy food, build the soil, and care for creation.
