Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Warmer Temperatures Make New USDA Plant Zone Map Obsolete
City College of New York - 9/12/2012.
By Jessa Netting – Gardeners and landscapers may want to rethink their fall tree plantings. Warming temperatures have already made the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s new cold-weather planting guidelines obsolete, according to Dr. Nir Krakauer, assistant professor of civil engineering in The City College of New York’s Grove School of Engineering.
Thinking outside the processed-foods box – health and safety advantages of organic food
Bangor Daily News - 9/11/2012.
By Mark A. Kastel – I have enjoyed a virtually exclusive organic diet for the past 30 years. But I was deeply unsettled by a September 4 New York Times article and a similar Associated Press story casting doubt on the value of an organic diet. Unfortunately, the analysis done by Stanford University physicians profiled in the articles discounted many of the studies that show our conventional food supply’s nutritional content has dropped precipitously over the last 50 years. This has been attributed to the declining health of our farms’ soil, and healthy soil leads to healthy food. Organic farming’s core value is building soil fertility.
Digital snow days
A Prosperous Way Down - 9/10/2012.
By Mary Logan – Folks in the Anchorage bowl woke Wednesday morning to widespread power outages, trees down, traffic lights out, and closed schools and businesses. As we progress further into descent, we will see more electricity brownouts, blackouts, and other events where there is a sudden failure of complexity, resulting in a shutdown of productivity. This failure of complexity has created a new urban word – “digital snow day.”
Should we buy organic foods?
Bangor Daily News - 9/10/2012.
Op-ed by Jody Spear – Should we care about conserving soil and water? Should we incentivize organic farming? And, to paraphrase the title of the Aug. 14 column with which I am taking issue, “should we buy organic foods?” Yes, yes and yes. But Georgia Clark-Albert, after posing these questions, comes out in a very different place.
