Stone Pier Press is aN environmental publishing house with a food focus. 

We’re a San Francisco-based nonprofit working towards a healthier, more humane, and climate-friendly food system. We do it by publishing good books about good food and producing solutions-oriented news and tips. Much of our focus is on how to grow, eat, and dispose of food in a way that’s good for the planet. We also run an extensive Environmental News & Marketing Fellowship program that gives participants a chance to acquire skills that help them become more effective advocates for change.

We’ve partnered with Chelsea Green Publishing, a company long known and respected for its books on sustainable living, to distribute our books. We also regularly team up with a growing list of mission-aligned nonprofits and businesses.

If you'd like to support the move toward a better food system, we'd love to hear from you - as an author, reader, potential partner, or supporter.

Environmental news & marketing Fellows

Our Fellows are a big part of what allows our publishing company to push for change and we're grateful for their energy, smarts, and activism. Here’s more information on the program, and how to apply.
