Grassroots Rising

cover to the book Grassroots Rising by Ronnie Cummins

“This is a book that should be in the hands of every activist working on food and farming, climate change and the Green New Deal." - Vandana Shiva

With each new report, the warnings from climate scientists are evermore dire.

Add to those warnings the deteriorating state of public and personal health, a collapsing ecosystem as evidenced by the alarming rate of species extinction—and the clear failure of government agencies and politicians to address any of these emergencies—and things look bleak.

Should we throw up our hands and declare the situation hopeless? Definitely not.

On the contrary, now is precisely the time to rise up and demand a Regenerative Green New Deal.

A blueprint for fixing a broken climate

In his new book, “Grassroots Rising: A Call to Action on Climate, Farming, Food, and a Green New Deal,” Ronnie Cummins lays out plan for doing just that.

A long-time activist and food movement leader, Ronnie has witnessed the worst of what corporate greed has wrought on our lives. In the intro to his book, he writes:

“Having spent most of their lives surrounded by oil refineries and chemical plants, most of my high school classmates died prematurely, many from cancers associated with environmental toxins, polluted drinking water, and low-grade, highly-processed poison food. Today, the memory of those who died too soon fuels my passion as an organic food and environmental campaigner against the Poison Cartel—Bayer/ Monsanto, Dow-DuPont, Syngenta/ChemChina, ExxonMobil, BP, Koch Industries, Halliburton, and all the rest—a cartel that, as you probably know, has polluted not only my hometown but the entire world.”

Can we turn it all around?

In true activist form, Ronnie says yes—and the solution lies right beneath our feet and at the end of our forks, through the transformation of our broken food system.

“Grassroots Rising” provides a blueprint for building and supercharging a grassroots Regeneration Movement based on consumer awareness, farmer innovation, political change, and regenerative finance—embodied most recently by the proposed Green New Deal in the United States.

The book is a practical playbook for how to survive—and thrive—in catastrophic times.
