Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
If nothing else, save farming
The Guardian [UK] - 11/16/2009.
By George Monbiot – I don’t know when global oil supplies will start to decline. I do know that another resource has already peaked and gone into freefall: the credibility of the body that’s meant to assess them. Last week two whistleblowers from the International Energy Agency alleged that it has deliberately upgraded its estimate of the world’s oil supplies in order not to frighten the markets.
The new farm owners
Common Dreams - 11/15/2009.
By GRAIN – With all the talk about "food security," and distorted media statements like "South Korea leases half of Madagascar's land," it may not be evident to a lot of people that the lead actors in today's global land grab for overseas food production are not countries or governments but corporations.
The new wave of urban farming (and fresh food from small spaces)
Grist - 11/12/2009.
By Makenna Goodman – Do you dream of an organic garden, but don’t have a yard? A flock of chicks, perhaps, but don’t have a yard? Home-grown food, and lower grocery bills (but, alas, no yard!)? Dream no more, because you can have it, and without quitting your job, trading your bus pass for a pickup, or moving to the rural north. A new wave of farming is happening in a city near you.
Grain trader calls food self sufficiency efforts “Nonsense”
Treehugger - 11/12/2009.
By John Laumer – No way a transnational company like Cargill feels its markets are threatened by the US locavore movement. How, though, do we explain a top executive at the Maryland-based grain trader stating that the notion that countries "can be self-sufficient in every single food is a nonsense". (so quoted in Financial Times) That's more of a food hyperbole than a logical argument against self sufficiency efforts.
