Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.
National Organic Coalition letter on the role of organic in combatting climate change
Organic Consumers - 6/11/2009.
On behalf of our organizations and members, we are collectively writing to encourage the Committees to recognize the benefits of organic agriculture practices for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigating and adapting to climate change.
