  • Leila has spent over 7 years working on environmental justice issues, largely in rural and indigenous communities struggling with contamination of land and drinking water
  • This is the first book in this field that bring readers the tools to take matters into their own hands.
  • Earth Repair makes grassroots bioremediation more accessible, effective, meaningful and tangible and puts the power back into people's hands when it comes to healing the land, as well as themselves.
  • In many places where the land is contaminated, the local people are dealing with horrendous health conditions and impacts. This book offers tools to help people not only deal with the toxic contamination in the ground but in their bodies as well.
  • With funding cuts to environmental clean up there is a need for communities to take action. Earth Repair offers low-cost, low tech solutions to sustainable land reclamation
  • From fungi that break down oil to plants that suck up heavy metals, Earth Repair welcomes you to the fertile and regenerative world of grassroots bioremediation and earth repair.
  • The only book to discuss oil spills and community responses to them; and to offer herbs/health options to protect first responders and other folks doing the remediation work.
