Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
So many ways to preserve harvest, barely the space to store it
Maine Sunday Telegram - 9/16/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Vegetable gardens are in full flush now. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, potatoes, onions and squash are producing abundantly – a lot more than you, your family, friends and neighbors can eat. That means it's time to preserve fruits and vegetables for the winter, when your garden will not be producing anything.
Bee study lifts lid on hive habits
The Guardian [UK] - 9/16/2012.
By Ian Sample – Experiments on the division of labour in honeybee hives have revealed why some bees do the waggle dance while others nurse their queens. According to a report in the journal Nature Neuroscience, the job a worker bee does corresponds to distinct patterns of chemicals that latch on to and regulate certain genes in their brains.
Why your health is bigger than your body
Yes! - 9/15/2012.
By Claudia Rowe – Talking with Dr. Ted Schettler is probably unlike any conversation you have had with your physician. Raise the topic of breast cancer or diabetes or dementia, and Schettler starts talking about income disparities, industrial farming, and campaign finance reform.
