Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organics growing both big and small; annual local conference begins Thursday
Guelph Mercury [Ontario] - 1/30/2010.
By Rob O’Flanagan – Organic agriculture is growing, and growing in two distinct directions – within the confines of the small family farm or community shared farm, and within the domain of big corporate farming. Values can differ greatly in these two worlds and those values are sure to meet, and likely clash at the 29th annual Guelph Organic Conference, which begins Thursday at the University of Guelph.
Diversity is key to planting vegetables
Bangor Daily News - 1/30/2010.

Common Dreams - 1/29/2010.

Genetic modification of seeds is dangerous, "since it is at the beginning of the agricultural chain, and can spread all over," says Benedikt Haerlin, former campaign manager at the environmental organization Greenpeace and former member of the European Parliament.
