Welcome to the Agrihood has something for everyone--new homebuyers, city-dwellers, and home gardeners.

LIVE in an agrihood, an eco-friendly, healthy-lifestyle community centered around a professionally managed farm. This book takes you through a virtual tour of agrihoods—known for beautiful, sustainably built homes with endless amenities such as charter K-12 schools, clubhouses, fitness centers, boating, golf, horseback riding, swimming, walking, hiking, and biking trails.

GROW your own organic food with helpful tips, planting guides, and valuable resources. Learn about organic certification, food safety, bees, biodiversity, composting, how far food travels, and how shopping locally reduces your carbon footprint.

SHOP from the “farmer you know,” and learn the story behind your food. This book describes options for buying fresh, sustainably sourced food from on-farm markets, food hubs, and community-supported agriculture (CSA) season-long farm share programs.
