    Full Description

    Food Planet Future takes the reader on an extraordinary visual tour of everyday foods and in the process, connects us more deeply to the world we help to shape. It draws upon art, research, and innovative practices to reimagine the tangled crises of food security, climate change, and biodiversity loss. The book invokes awe and wonder and inspires action taken on our Earth’s behalf.
    Food Planet Future illustrates and describes practices, tools, knowledge, and research which, if implemented on a wide scale, could help reverse climate change threats and biodiversity loss. These include: no-till cultivation techniques, perennial planting, soil amendments such as rock dust, biochar, and compost, use of cover crops and prairie strips, rotational grazing of livestock, integration of tree crops with livestock, intercropping, prescribed burning, seawater agriculture, ecosystem restoration, new crop cultivars, and more.
    It is imperative that we inform people about the best ideas to solve the food and climate breakdown. Food Planet Future invites readers to reimagine those possibilities.

Dash’s images have appeared in galleries and juried shows in the US and overseas. His TEDx lecture, The Intercourse of Nature, explores leaf stomata as a metaphor for interconnectedness.
