The Sustainable Book Club
Even as much as I love to read- I have never been in a book club. But no time like the present eh? I love reading all these sustainable living books and they inspire so many ideas in me and I want to talk to everyone about them. What is feasible here in town, or in my backyard? How can we adapt these ideas for Texas? So I am starting The Sustainable Book Club! A few old friends and new friends will gather in real life to discuss the monthly books and share ideas. If you are here in town, I invite you to join us.
I will also be hosting The Sustainable Book Club online on this blog so I hope everyone who wants to will read along with us and share their ideas and inspirations. I promise to look into how to run a book club... you know...sometime soon. I would love suggestions of books or topics you want to find out more about for next month.
In the mean time- I have picked our first book! It is one of my favorites- Farm City by Novella Carpenter. I haven't read it in a few years so it will be new to me all over again. I'm letting everyone know now- so they can go about finding the book while I work out the book club details. I just checked and the San Antonio Library has 10 copies and; if you don't know about this, I'm about to blow your mind, you can also e-check it out for your e-reader. (Isn't that so cool?!) You can also purchase it from your friendly local book seller- say The Twig in San Antonio or Book People in Austin. (You will want to call ahead to The Twig. As the name suggests, they are petite and might need to order it for you) You can also click this link: Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer
or the photo above to order it from Amazon.* I changed my mind- I am no longer using Amazon affiliate links. Or any affiliate links. I want everyone to be assured I am only recommending products or services I really use and enjoy.
Can't wait to discuss this book with you online and in person.
