One of the most important roles we have at the Food Action Committee is being a community resource for information about growing, cooking, preserving, and storing locally produced foods. Every day our office receives calls asking for advice on these subjects – and many more. We’ll never immediately have all the answers to all the questions we get asked, but we always try to be a helpful support, and we are very good at ferreting out information in response to public calls!
Sometimes, requests for information are just too vast for us to answer questions over the phone. That’s why we’ve started collecting publications regarding gardening and other food skills in a little library. We have books on organic gardening, permaculture, canning, greenhouse and root cellar design, food sovereignty and more. It’s just another way we’re offering community support!
You can download a full list of books, reports and DVDs in our library here.
