Founded in 1984, Chelsea Green Publishing is recognized as a leading publisher of books on the politics and practice of ecologically based living, publishing authors who bring in-depth, practical knowledge to life, and give readers hands-on information related to organic and regenerative farming and gardening, ecology and the environment, healthy food, local economies and resilient communities, and integrative health and wellness.
Chelsea Green sees publishing as a tool for challenging conventional narratives and assumptions about how the world “works,” about what it means to be human, and about how life and cultural systems are organized. Our purpose is to reverse the destruction of the natural world by challenging the beliefs and practices that are enabling that destruction and by providing inspirational and practical alternatives that promote regenerative action.
We publish authors that empower and inspire individuals to reduce their ecological impact and to participate in the restoration of healthy local communities, bioregional ecosystems, and a diversity of cultures. Chelsea Green promotes better understanding of natural systems as a global commons and to empower people to participate in restoring those commons, to serve as its effective stewards, and to help mitigate worldwide social and environmental disruptions.
