Going Organic: Mobilising Networks for Environmentally Responsible Food Production
S Lockie, K Lyons, G Lawrence and D Halpin
This book sets out to examine what really is going on in the organic sector socially and politically. In the process,
it debunks a number of apparently common-sense beliefs: that organic consumers are wealthy environmental and
health extremists; that growth in the industry will inevitably undermine its environmental values; that mainstream
media is antagonistic to organics; and that the industry is driven by consumer demand. This book seeks to make
a practical contribution to the development of more sustainable food systems by articulating what it takes
people involved in organics at each stage of the food chain.
