Making Love While Farming is a compelling book that includes over fifty essays and stories that recount the humorous and harsh realities of a honeymoon of thousands of miles walked on pilgrimage from Auschwitz to Hiroshima; sixty combined years in the farm fields; adventures building and living off the grid; and the launch of a garlic and arts festival with neighbors and a hundred bucks that draws as many as ten thousand people each year.
“Farming and loving, passion and purpose: words that do not always fit seamlessly, but Deb Habib and Ricky Baruch have managed to bring them together beautifully in this inspiring testament to their life’s work. Weaving common sense, humor, and love, this is a truly delicious potpourri of thoughts on sustainable farming, anti-war activism, healthy eating, and committed solidarity for people and the earth. I know you will treasure this book as much as I treasure them.”
