As more countries and individuals are opting against genetically engineered crops, international agribusinesses continue to insist that GMOs are the only realistic solution to the world food crisis. Here, in an exclusive excerpt from her new anthology, Seed Sovereignty, Food Security, Vandana Shiva debunks that, and several more myths about GMOs.

North Atlantic Books will be welcoming Sister Abegail Ntleko to the Bay Area for several speaking engagements this spring. Sister Ntleko is a recipient of the Unsung Heroes of Compassion award, presented by the Dalai Lama, and author of the book Empty Hands: One Woman’s Journey to Save Children Orphaned by AIDS in South Africa.

Though the fall harvest has come and gone, you can still find plenty of edible fruits, vegetables, and fungi, even in the winter months. No matter where you are, there are delicious foods to be foraged. This weekend, get in touch with your primordial hunting and gathering instincts; I promise it’ll be a lot more fun than stalking a cantaloupe in the supermarket. As always, be sure to check and re-check as you sort through your spoils: while many plants are safe, many others are poisonous or could upset your stomach.

Give the gift of a good book! North Atlantic Books gift certificates can be applied to our broad selection of ebooks and our new audiobooks. Simply select the desired certificate amount. At checkout, you’ll be prompted to enter an email address and personalized message, where you can also include book suggestions. Once you’ve placed your order, the recipient will be emailed your note along with a coupon code for store credit. These coupons can be used at any time and will never expire.
