Book Launch: The Urban Food Revolution

October 27, 2011

"A revolution in food — where, how, and when it's grown — is now sweeping urban centres. Read this book to see why it matters and how we can do it."

--David Suzuki, Co-Founder, David Suzuki Foundation.

Developed through the Planning Cities as if Food Matters project hosted at SFU Centre for Dialogue, Dialogue Fellow Peter Ladner published his first book The Urban Food Revolution: Changing the Way We Feed Cities. The SFU Centre for Dialogue hosted the book launch at Barbara Jo’s Books to Cooks, and the event generated 200 attendees from the community.

Planning Cities as if Food Matters
