Check out the Free Bookmarks at the Dunbar Libraries and The Sustainability and Environmental Summer 2011 Reading List—Literally, Check them out!

Many of the books and DVD’s on this list are award winners and best sellers by top authors. There is something here for everyone—history buffs to business majors, engineers to ecologists and even some for the younger crowd. There’s even DVD’s if you don’t feel like reading today. Be sure to check out the entire list for interesting reading for this summer and beyond!

A very special prize for readers of 7 or more of the books listed here. Want to read a biography of the smart, brave woman who was the igniting spark for the environmental movement in the 1960’s?  Anything by or about Rachel Carson would be on my list of favorites. And be sure to check out Hunt Brown’s favorites, too.  You can find these at the Dunbar Library or a public library near you or purchase them on line. You may also want to email me at sustainability@wright.edu because many of the items on this list can be borrowed this summer from the Office of Sustainability.

Land & Freedom: Talking Food Systems
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh food projects in San Diego's diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with residents that are taking advantage of the city's reformed urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities. Residents are eating healthier with produce they've grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.

About filmmaker:
Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with under-served communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative. As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.
