Climate change, peak oil, food security, rampant consumerism, the struggle for Maori sovereignty - these issues can seem overwhelming for those of us who are primarily focussed on the day-to-day task of caring for our whanau.

This book makes explicit the connection between the global and local, between the political and the personal. Jessica Hutchings explains the political implications of the decisions that we make about growing and eating kai. In this book, she encourages us to take control over the food security of our whanau, providing practical advice on how to grow kai in accordance with the kaupapa of hua parakore, inspiring us with stories of hua parakore heroes and reassuring us that becoming a hua parakore gardener is a journey that anyone can embark on.
