Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
That’s fascinating stuff
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/14/2009.
By Meredith Goad – If you're driving along the midcoast and see a man on a bike paused by the side of the road, looking intently at some tree or flower, chances are it's Kerry Hardy. Hardy is a modern Renaissance man, one who moves easily back and forth between knowledge of forestry, gardening, history, farming, language and the environment. He is well known in the Rockland area for going everywhere on his bike so that he doesn't miss anything. That kind of all-encompassing curiosity pervades Hardy's new book, "Notes on a Lost Flute: A Field Guide to the Wabanaki" (Down East Books, $21.95), an accessible dissertation on the lives of the original native Mainers.
Note to nurseries: no more invasives
Bangor Daily News - 6/13/2009.
By Reeser Manley – Euonymus alatus, known to some as winged euonymus for the four corky wings that appear occasionally along the young stems, to others as burning bush because of the bright crimson color of autumn leaves, is a non-native invasive plant. In other words, it is a noxious weed.
Greenhorns: building a movement of young farmers
Common Dreams - 6/12/2009.
By Severine von Tscharner Fleming – Almost two years after its founding in a basement in Berkeley, California, The Greenhorns has matured from an idea for a recruitment film into a widespread national community. We are now happily rooted on my first commercial farm, Smithereen, on rented land in the Hudson Valley of New York.
Peak oil is for real: the era of cheap oil is officially over
Alternet - 6/12/2009.
By Michael T. Klare – As it happens, the recent release of the 2009 IEO [International Energy Outlook] has provided energy watchers with a feast of significant revelations. By far the most significant disclosure: the IEO predicts a sharp drop in projected future world oil output (compared to previous expectations) and a corresponding increase in reliance on what are called "unconventional fuels" – oil sands, ultra-deep oil, shale oil, and biofuels.
