FROM NEW ZEALAND
What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like?
Across India marginal farmers are reviving an arcane form of agriculture and exposing the bio-colonialism of multinational corporations and their failed mantra of infinite growth in a finite world. HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD tells their story through the teachings of an elderly New Zealander many are calling the new Gandhi.
A blueprint for a post-industrial future, How to Save the World takes you into the heart of the world's most important renaissance. The outcome of the battle for agricultural control in India may just dictate the future of the earth.
Featuring Peter Proctor, New Zealand's father of modern biodynamics
