The final advice section offers questions to ask a farmer, instructions on starting a community garden or improving your local school's food, and some tasty-looking recipes. It's useful, even if the material is not all top-notch: the authors of the slightly hysterical article on GM food, for instance, claim that it involves "randomly" chucking genes together, and will lead inevitably to "designer babies". What kind of designer baby you'd get by purely random genome-splicing remains a mystery.
