Garden health = your own health?

The health of the garden seems to match our own health (both physical and mental). This summer the garden was full of horrible squash beetles that killed everything. The hot days baked the corn.

Find this book here at Pioneers Press

Based on the popular zine that had reviewers and fans alike demanding more,The Revolution Starts at Home finally breaks the dangerous silence surrounding the “open secret” of intimate violence—by and toward caretakers, in romantic partnerships, and in friendships—within social justice movements. This watershed collection compiles stories and strategies from survivors and their allies, documenting a decade of community accountability work and delving into the nitty-gritty of creating safety from abuse without relying on the prison industrial complex.

Fearless, tough-minded, and ultimately loving, The Revolution Starts at Home offers potentially life-saving alternatives for creating survivor safety while building a movement where no one is left behind.
