Restoring Eden: Unearthing the Agribusiness Secret That Poisoned My Farming Community

Cover of Restoring Eden by Elizabeth D. Hilborn showing a cross section of a farm and a root system.

Restoring Eden describes the experience of Elizabeth Hilborn, environmental scientist and owner of a family fruit farm, as she traces the cause of diminishing yields and a lack of pollinators on her farm. She describes how the scientific evidence she collects from water samples reflected the increased use of agricultural chemicals in the region, polluting waterways and soils, and causing catastrophic declines in insect populations.

The book gives a first hand account of the resistance and scepticism she received from neighbours, environmental experts and agriculture consultants and her continued attempt to raise awareness of the dangers of agribusiness.
