Grace Gershuny weaves her personal journey through the transition of the organic movement into an organic food industry. She takes on the challenge of turning an ecological philosophy into a federal regulation — a huge effort that put a legal framework on a process that flows from seed to table. Her book is the inside story of the people and events that led to the organic market and regulation we have today. Grace alternates her personal story with clear explanations of the rationale for the organic regulations as they were developed. She shows the difficulties of changing a holistic philosophy into a process, not product, guarantee. It's essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how the organic movement started small and grew into the mainstream.
