Ron Krupp, known for his book The Woodchuck's Guide to Gardening is now the author of a second book, Lifting the Yoke: Local Solutions to America's Farm and Food Crisis. Krupp has a long history of involvement with Vermont's local farm and food issues, beginning with founding one of the first farmer's markets in the early 70s in Brattleboro.
The Buffalo Mountain Food Co-op and The Galaxy Bookshop are pleased to welcome Ron Krupp for a discussion of his new book on Tuesday, July 21 at 7 p.m.
In Lifting the Yoke, Ron Krupp presents a look at the corporate food industry, the damage it has caused and continues to cause our environment, our local economies, and our health. He offers many examples of ways in which small farms, co-ops, food shelves, and other businesses and individuals are creating alternatives to the mainstream food industry.
