The Radical Center

With the terrestrial and social climate now both roiling at a full boil, Gary Nabhan’s Food From the Radical Center offers up a bit of welcome optimism about the power of landscape-level coalitions to both build community and protect the environment.

Known for crafting compelling narratives about regenerative agriculture practices and heirloom plant-varieties, Nabhan now argues for the cultivation of an ethos of collaborative conservation.

Highlighting folks who have managed to bridge both social and ideological divides in order to support biodiversity such as a Texas rancher who works with Native American bison managers; or a rancher from Kansas  raising heritage turkeys with a businessman from Brooklyn, Nabhan shows how collaborations inspired by regenerative values can both unite diverse communities and preserve global biodiversity.
