Farmacy’s new book is an insurgent manifesto for a radically different way of eating and farming. It traces a path from the health of the soil to the health of human beings, with food as the connecting agent between our mental, physical and planetary wellbeing. A collaboration between researchers, artists and writers, the Farmacy Manifesto on the Future of Food is a handsomely produced pocket-sized tour de force through the interconnected topics of soil ecology, industrial agriculture, the medicinal qualities of food, the gut-brain axis and regeneration, charting a bold path towards the renewal of our civilization. The book is authored by Aurora Solá and art directed by Carol Montpart. It features botanical image sequences by Batia Suter.
