Girl Scout Book on Food Security and Community Action

[originally posted to the national Community Food Security list]

Dear Friends at COMFOOD:

Many of you responded to my queries–and were spirited and supportive–while I was writing a book for 9th and 10th grade Girl Scouts about food, food security, sustainable agriculture, global hunger/poverty and community leadership. I am pleased to announce that the book, Sow What?, is now out!

It’s available on the Girl Scout website:

An Adult Volunteer companion guide is also available as part of a set with the book.  Here’s the link for that:

If you have any questions or any problems navigating the sites, please be in touch with me directly:  I’d also love to hear any feedback.

Thanks again.  This community played a vital part in the fruition of the project!
