The Radical Center

With the terrestrial and social climate now both roiling at a 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 partnerships and protect the global 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 ( a rancher from Texasd who works with Native American bison managers; or another 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 our global biodiversity.
