Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Food security – the three ‘Rs’
Resurgence - 11/30/2009.
By Jonathan Porrit – Three fundamental principles should under-pin any approach to food security: resilience, resolarisation and relocalisation. More than two years after the 2007 floods in the West of England, over 150 families are still homeless – many of them in Tewkesbury. The anniversary of the floods prompted a number of moving interviews with these environmental refugees – driven from their homes by the kind of climate-induced disaster that we are going to see so much more of over the next few years.
Climate-friendly farming
Resurgence - 11/30/2009.

It sounds like a tough dose of wisdom to swallow, but one that Leap, who is farm operations manager at the University of California at Santa Cruz’s (UC Santa Cruz) Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems, says his former students often tell him is spot on.
