Harvest for Hope by Jane Goodall


Harvest for Hope by Jane Goodall


When I reviewed The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan, I said a lot about eating right and eating healthy, and very importantly, keeping our food, our lands, our water, and ourselves, healthy.


Jane Goodall’s Harvest for Hope is more of the same. Sustainable living is so important, making sure that what we do today to produce our foods, will not end up causing our children and our children’s children to starve in a world that can no longer produce good and healthy food for them.


Goodall gives us more information about what’s happening with our foods, our water, and our lands, and personally I think that educating ourselves with more information on this subject is one of the most important things you can do for the Earth.


We talk about green living, saving water, saving electricity, planting more trees, reducing our carbon footprint… Well, Goodall tells us more ways we can make a difference. And yes, each individual does make a difference.


The destruction of the earth is not some far away science fiction idea that we’ll never live to see. It’s happening right now, and we’ve closed our eyes to it. It’s affecting our health already, and still we choose to be ignorant. We can do something about it, and we should do something about it, before it’s too late.
