It is a great read for those engaging African American communities in gardening and other environmental issues. Focusing on our history from the rich dirt of Africa to the planting of the garden at our nation’s capital by Michelle Obama, one can find resolve and inspiration to continue the work of environmental justice and a spiritual reclaiming of our responsibility to be good stewards of the land. – Goodreads
