Addressing participatory, transdisciplinary approaches to local stewardship of the environment, Grassroots to Global features scholars and stewards exploring the broad impacts of civic engagement with the environment. Chapters focus on questions that include: How might faith-based institutions in Chicago expand the work of church-community gardens? How do volunteer "nature cleaners" in Tehran attempt to change Iranian social norms? How does an international community in Baltimore engage local people in nature restoration while fostering social equity? How does a child in an impoverished coal mining region become a local and national leader in abandoned mine restoration? And can a loose coalition that transforms blighted areas in Indian cities into pocket parks become a social movement? From the findings of the authors' diverse case studies, editor Marianne Krasny provides a way to help readers understand the greater implications of civic ecology practices through the lens of multiple disciplines.

"Grassroots to Global is about reclaiming broken pieces....the text is enhanced with a variety of charts and pictures, and it clearly has a global reach." * Electric Green Journal * "Both eminently practical and theoretically sophisticated. Grassroots to Global will be of great interest to those who focus on civic ecology in particular, or scholars and practitioners who focus on grassroots approaches to social-ecological change in general." * Choice *
