In all the talk about climate change, rarely mentioned is the huge part played by agriculture. Now more than ever, we need to build community-level capacity to grow nutritious food in a climate-friendly way.

In this inspiring and visually beautiful volume, seed expert Dan Jason profiles twenty-one nutritious, energizing, time-tested, earth-friendly and beautiful plants to enhance home- and community-scale agriculture, and challenge a chemical-industrial farming system reliant on fossil fuel inputs. These often-overlooked, easy-to-grow, and soil-enhancing plants are small powerhouses with huge potential to add nutrient value to home food gardens and help to create secure local food systems.

The first self-published edition of Changing the Climate with the Seeds we Sow sold out in just 5 months – this expanded second edition features additional beautiful watercolour illustrations by award-winning artist Lyn Alice.
