VENESS, Kimberley




Author Tags: Agriculture, Kidlit & Young Adult

Kimberley Veness of Adams Lake learned to love land, animals, growing food and the smell of manure on a ninety-acre family farm in Saskatchewan. In her first book, Let's Eat: Sustainable Food for a Hungry Planet (Orca Footprints 2017), she uncovers the secret lives of our groceries, explores alternative farm technologies and tours gardens on corporate rooftops and military-style bunkers below streets. With facts about agriculture around the world, Veness covers everything from the biggest farm in the world to how many pesticides are in a single grape.
