A reading, conversation and signing with the authors: Ricky Baruch and Deb Habib, co-founders of Seeds of Solidarity Farm and Education Center in Orange, MA. Making Love While Farming: A Field Guide to a Life of Passion and Purpose has been described in reviews as equal parts memoir, inspiration and handbook. Rooted in the authors’ three decades of experience “in the field” and as educators and community organizers, the book and related presentations affirm the possibility and necessity of lives and livelihoods that respond to environmental and social justice issues with creativity, love, and balance. It published by worker-owned Levellers Press in Amherst MA.
