Foodshed: An Edible Alberta Alphabet

“You know your doctor, you know your lawyer, you know your accountant.  Who’s your farmer?”  In this non-fiction book, author dee Hobsbawn-Smith profiles 75 growers and producers of the Canadian province Alberta to answer just that question for her neighbors and her readers.  Although these farmers are located in Alberta, anyone can read this book to learn more about the lives of farmers in general: from their struggles, to their stance on government involvement, to their future goals.  Oh, and you don’t want to miss out on the 26 original recipes dee includes throughout the book!
