Growing Beautiful Food is a chronicle of growing food and living sustainably as a life-changing experience with all of the joy and work of transforming a small piece of land into a thriving organic farm. Photographer Matthew Benson escaped from the city to find a meaningful connection to the land, purposeful physical work and the opportunity to supply his family with healthy, organic and delicious food. With insight into the history and practice of farming and the broken politics of our food system, as well as practical advice for starting and maintaining your own food garden, Growing Beautiful Food argues that the idea of integrating edibles into your suburban lot is a first step toward a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
