Welcome to my blog for Deep Agroecology: Farms, Food, and Our Future, formerly publishing online as The Call of the Land.

My name is Steven McFadden. I’ve been writing about the land since I graduated from journalism school at Boston University in 1975. I’ve authored hundreds of articles, and over a dozen nonfiction books exploring themes related to the land and to our lives.

This blog expresses the urgent call of the land as I and a host of other listeners hear it. In particular it explores positive creative responses to the call that we might have an abundance of clean food and heal the profoundly distressed environment in which we and our children dwell.

After seven years of study, I’ve written and published a new book titled, Deep Agroecology: Farms, Food, and Our Future. That’s my enduring interest, what I regard as our main chance.

Check out my Youtube channel for a brief slide show on Deep Agroecology, and other topics.

I invite you to visit my other websites as well. Chiron Communications is my general, all-purpose site, describing other realms of work, and my other books including Farms of Tomorrow (1990) and Farms of Tomorrow Revisited (1998) which I co-authored with Trauger Groh. They are the first two books published on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). I also authored Awakening Community Intelligence: CSA Farms as Community Cornerstones.

Ultimately, there is Odyssey of the 8th Fire, wherein I have the opportunity to relate the true saga of a multicultural band of pilgrims. We made an epic journey on foot in 1995-96, walking from the Atlantic to the Pacific under the dramatic sky sign of the Whirling Rainbow, and the sure guidance of tradition keepers and spiritual elders of North America. Through this online saga, the elders and the walkers make a great, ongoing giveaway of their understandings about the land, and our era of transition.
