On Pasture is delighted to be chosen by Lyons Press to give readers a preview of Forrest Pritchard’s new book “Gaining Ground,” letting us share the first chapter. Download it here: GainingGround – Ch 1
We asked you to support this book, and you responded: in a week’s time, Gaining Ground became the #2 best selling book on Amazon’s “Sustainable Agriculture” list! Grassroots support like this doesn’t happen by accident.
But now we’ve got just ONE WEEK LEFT to put this story on the biggest stage of all, the New York Times best seller list. If you believe in the promise of sustainable agriculture, if you support local food, and if you want to positively affect the future of family farms, then please send a message to the mainstream media. Let’s send this book up the charts.
Sales are tallied week by week, and the book’s momentum is strong. If everyone strategically places their order this week (May 14-May 21) then we stand a legitimate shot of making the cut. How awesome would it be to see a farmer at the top of the best sellers list? If that sounds good to you, here’s where you can order the book.
Let’s go for it. Let’s put sustainable farming in the national spotlight, where it belongs.
