Hispanics Living Green

Book-hispanics-living-green A new book called Hispanics Living Green, by Sharon T. Freeman, details the community- and family-based relationship between Hispanic culture and the earth through stories of people who have steered environmental action away from individualism.

Sifting through its pages, you meet people like organic farmer Chris Velez, who has accepted the need of balance between conventional agriculture and organic farming. Sierra Club columnist Javier Sierra also contributes his story.
