Juliana Birnbaum has lived and worked in the United States, Europe, Japan, Nepal, Costa Rica and Brazil. Along the way, the cultural anthropologist gained exposure to agricultural models that inform Sustainable Revolution: Permaculture in Ecovillages, Urban Farms and Communities Worldwide. Coedited with her partner, award-winning filmmaker Louis Fox, the book explores the potential of honoring nature's patterns and living within its bounds. Featuring 60 community-based projects in diverse climates — think native Hawaiians reclaiming taro agriculture and green technologies in an Italian ecovillage — the collection pairs stunning photography with profiles, essays and interviews that highlight this harmonious practice.

Price: Free.
