One of the foremost plant conservationists in the world, Amy Goldman has devoted her life to cultivating fruits and vegetables. A 200-acre plot of land in the Hudson Valley has become home to an abundance of organic produce, with orchards full of apples, pears and peaches and plots of squashes, melons, beetroot, peppers, tomatoes and aubergines. Her aspiration to preserve our agricultural heritage and celebrate our beautiful and unique heirlooms is perfectly matched to the work of acclaimed photographer Jerry Spagnoli. Over more than a decade, Jerry has visited Amy's garden, and with the historical daguerreotype camera has produced ethereal images that have a silvery, luminous depth and a timeless beauty. In Heirloom Harvest, these photographs are accompanied by an essay by Amy in which she shares her passion and advocacy for heirloom gardening. An exquisite package created with the highest production values, Heirloom Harvest will become an heirloom itself, underscoring the historical continuity and value of the produce that comes from our earth.
