Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Golden Rice: Lifesaver?
The New York Times - 8/24/2013.
By Amy Harmon - One bright morning this month, 400 protesters smashed down the high fences surrounding a field in the Bicol region of the Philippines and uprooted the genetically modified rice plants growing inside.
One of the first fruit trees planted in America is still alive and well at age 383
Treehugger - 8/24/2013.
By Stephen Messenger - When the first European settlers stepped foot on Plymouth Rock in 1620, the landscape they encountered must have felt like the epitome of wildness. In time, of course, cottages and farmhouses, roads and footpaths would sprout up even there as 'civilization' took root. But little could they have guessed, from those fragile early shoots, that the whole wild continent would be tamed in just a few short centuries. It may be hard to believe, however, but one of America's earliest settlers is still alive today - and still bearing fruit after 383 years.

Crop of young farmers growing in Maine
Bangor Daily News - 8/23/2013.
By By Abigail Curtis - Her head shaded from the sun by a wide-brimmed hat, Rachel Katz crouched in verdant rows of watermelons and cantaloupes late Wednesday afternoon while her two small children helped fill plastic crates with the fruit to sell for the next day’s market.
