‘Profound, complex, anecdotal, Call of the Reed Warbler wants to change the world. It could be the most important book you will ever read.’ Bill Gammage
‘Its gentle yet compelling voice, its depth of feeling and honesty, its sense of purpose and vision, is sure to make it an Australian classic.’ Books+Publishing
Call of the Reed Warbler will change the way we farm, eat and think about food. In this astounding book, Charles Massy explores regenerative agriculture and the vital connection between our soil and our health. Using his own farming experience as a touchstone, Massy tells the real story behind industrial agriculture and the global profit-obsessed corporations driving it. He shows how innovative farmers are finding a new way, regenerating their land and witnessing astounding transformations. He captures what it truly means to live in connection with the land and offers a powerful affirmation of our potential to change.
