"When folks find out that I am an organic farmer, the first question they ask is, �What do you do to control the pests?,� This surprises me�it�s as if they view all farming as some sort of heavily defensive act, that farmers are like generals in the field fighting off an endless invading force. My answer to the question is almost always received with some level of doubt and suspicion.

I tell people that pests and diseases are the result of a system out of balance. It�s no different for you or for me. If I push myself hard, don�t sleep, and don�t eat well, eventually I will get sick. Just like people, plants require a well-balanced environment to stay well. Plants under stress attract pests and diseases." Excerpt from Streetfarm: Growing Food, Jobs, and Hope on the Urban Frontier (Chelsea Green, 2016)

Street Farm is the inspirational account of residents in the notorious Low Track in Vancouver, British Columbia?one of the worst urban slums in North America?who joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighborhood. It is a story of recovery, of land and food, of people, and of the power of farming and nourishing others as a way to heal our world and ourselves.
