This third book from Philip Lymbery is a powerful, fast-paced journey presenting the unpalatable truth – that if we allow our global farming system to continue, we will only have 60 harvests left. We travel from Philip’s beloved and threatened Sussex countryside to farmed areas, including the USA’s barren mega cattle feedlots, which are turning the earth to dust. His incisive research and storytelling make it clear that Big Ag’s domination has destroyed our 10,000 year life giving contract with the soil.
The picture is an undeniably bleak one. But Sixty Harvests Left presents readers with hope and solutions – the regenerative farming systems and the people behind them that work. These are visionary practices that respect our soil, wild and farmed animals and that will ultimately lead to a better future of our children.
All proceeds of Philip’s books go towards Compassion in World Farming.
In this beautifully written book Philip Lymbery describes how intensive agriculture harms the environment and inflicts suffering on sentient animals. But after visiting with and talking to those on the front line – scientists, farmers and food providers, he is able to show that there are sustainable alternatives. And that they are working. There is indeed hope for the future of our planet, and each one of us can play a part. I urge you to read ‘Sixty Harvests Left’.
