Vicki Robin is coauthor with Joe Dominguez of Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Achieving Financial Independence. Her most recent book, Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; what eating closer to home can teach us about food, community and our place on earth tells how her experiment in 10-mile eating not only changed how she ate, but also renewed her hope and rooted her in her community. The New York Times called her the “prophet of consumption downsizers.” Throughout this conversation, she refers to efforts in her community, many of them through the Whidbey Island Institute and Transition Whidbey.
