A Conversation with Author Steven McFadden

Steven’s most recent book, The Call of the Land: An Agrarian Primer for the 21st Century was voted among the ‘Best Books of 2009’ by Food Systems Network NYC, a local food advocacy group.

Mr. McFadden has been reporting on CSA since its inceptions in 1986. He co-authored the first two books about Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) and sustainable farming. His book Farms of Tomorrow (1990) had a significant impact On the development of CSA, as did the follow up, Farms of Tomorrow Revisited (1998).

His newest book is broader in scope and provides a road map for communities seeking food security and sustainability and highlights the connections between
our food, the economy, our health and our shared environment.
