Making Love While Farming, written by Ricky Baruch and Deb Habib, 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. These, plus ‘field guides’ with practical DIY ideas, contemplative practices, and seasonal recipes unite under one cover to inspire readers to cultivate resilient and vibrant lives and communities.

Published by Levellers Press, Deb and Ricky’s book is the savory story of a couple who challenged convention to shape a self-created life and grow a loving relationship and family. Their vision blossomed Seeds of Solidarity Farm and Education Center–a solar powered oasis and renowned organization that has taught thousands to ‘Grow Food Everywhere.’
