Barnes &
Vital Health Publishing

Taste Life! is about organic food consumption and more. It tells you why organic foods represent a healthier choice for yourself and your family. It tells you why they represent a more responsible choice in terms of ecology, biodiversity of crops, sustainable agriculture, small family farms, the world food supply, traditional farming methods and community-based enterprise. And it tells you why they represent an enhanced aesthetic choice in meals that are more hearty, flavorful and satisfying.

Consuming organic foods makes you a part of the cycle of life - so move your plate a little closer to the soil in which it was grown.


The answer to health will be found in the soil to a great extent. -J.I. Rodale

There is also an ecology of the world within our bodies. -Rachel Carson

Are we, as individuals and as a society, operating in a sustainable manner? - Frank Ford

I am terrified at the Earth, it is that calm and patient, It grows such sweet things out of such corruptions. - Walt Whitman

We cannot escape the ethical and spiritual values of life. -Lady Eve Balfour

Mother Earth in the appearance of her children will provide all that is necessary. - Sir Albert Howard

Food is the most important thing in life, besides Dad and Mom. -Aaron Ableman (11)

The Book Reader Spring/Summer 1999
The Health and Vitality of Organic Foods. Just in time for summer crops! The top people in organic food, a couple dozen of them, share their thoughts on this growing option. A fellow from Washington state's Skagit Valley covers the history and business of growing. Another, product development and marketing. A mother details her concern for family. Others corroborate how chemical-free gardening works. Thouhts on farmer-earth relationships, cooking organic food, it's all here. And the emeritus folks get equal billing. Sir Albert Howard, a turn of the century Brit who helped poor farmers in India feed themselves without chemicals. About J.I. Rodale, the patriarch of the nutrition publishing empire, who picked up on Howard's experience and began an American movement. The Dust Bowl events of the '30s sounded an alarm. Others read Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and reacted. Good soil is alive with organic matter. This humus teems with nutrition. But large scale farming the past 150 years has dropped the humus content of some soils to 1 percent. Organic farmers and related colleagues fixed that. Here's how, in a book "written both for the patient, forbearing earth and for its hungry, suffering inhabitants." And it's not just a marketing plan, with a logo on a label. "If you process the life out of the grain, you can't call a loaf of bread organic, even if it is made from organically-grown wheat." Full of pull-quotes and pithy comments in the margins. Pieces from TV's Food Network, Cornell University, scientists. Includes the poem, This Compost by Walt Whitman. My goodness, the goodess is here!
