Vandana Shiva, one of my favorite ecofeminist authors has a new book out. Soil Not Oil is just the latest in her long line of incredibly eye opening books by this India-based author. Starting with the chipko movement in the 70′s, her activism is all about celebrating women’s rights and nature’s rights together.
Want to get involved? Navdanya (translation: nine crops that represent India’s collective source of food security) offers both volunteer opportunities and internships that can be found at the website. Definitely something to think about if you’ve just gotten laid off or looking for a different experience.
