Up We Grow! is an informative and inspiring book highlighting the importance of small, local farms. Heart-warming photos invite children into the world of a small, co-operative farm over four seasons. Readers will get to know the hardworking farmers who plough, plant, compost, mulch, harvest and market fruits and vegetables, and care for animals. Rarely has the important work of a farm been so lovingly presented in photos and text. The book focuses on production as well as the human interaction that makes up small-scale, local farm culture. Children will discover people of all ages and abilities working together to grow and share food, while protecting and respecting the land and animals we depend upon for our sustenance.
