      Thank you for this list of resources. I’ve only read maybe a quarter of what you’ve listed, and am now reading Active Hope as a result of earlier posts. Not a scientist here by any means, just an urban ag advocate and person who cares and wants to understand how to make wiser choices that affect our ecology.

      Gassho,

        No worries, B. Those are not there are a suggestion that everyone needs to read all of them, just resources if people are looking for something more.

        The great thing about this group is that everyone comes from different backgrounds and there is no need to be a scientist to be concerned about what is happening to the planet.
