    A memoir of making these essential relationships work in the face of challenges as natural as weather and as unnatural as corporate politics, her book is a firsthand history of getting in at the "ground level" of organic farming. One of the first certified organic produce farms in the Midwest, the Diffleys' Gardens of Eagan helped to usher in a new kind of green revolution in the heart of America's farmland, supplying their roadside stand and a growing number of local food co-ops.

    Any additional comments?

    The author, Atina Diffley narrates this book herself, and it is obvious that this is not her full or even part time gig.The narration was slow, stiff, lacked any natural flow or appropriate emphasis, and really grated on my nerves. I felt like I was having a third grader read me the story. I have listened to many audiobooks and, while I don't always like the narrators voice, I have never had to stop listening to a book.... until now. I made it about 45 minutes into this one and couldn't take it anymore.

    As I didn't make it very far in the book, I cannot comment on the story. Given the description, my interest in the subject matter, and the generally positive reviews on amazon, I may attempt to read a hard copy of this myself.

    I suggest listening to a preview before purchasing. I didn't and won't be making that mistake again.
