Public Produce

ALICE WATERS, Chez Panisse

This vital book shows how growing food on public land can transform our civic landscape, sprouting the seeds of biodiversity, sustainability, and community.”

Nordahl is a visionary who shows how easily cities could promote urban agriculture to the great benefit of all concerned.


As part of a small but growing group of local food advocates that includes Gary Paul Nabhan, Michael Pollan, and Alice Waters, Nordahl has produced a work that approaches the subject from the creative new angle of producing food in very public places.
