Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Community Supported Agriculture: How Big Is Too Big?
National Public Radio - 7/16/2013.
By Grace Hood - Can a CSA program get too big? According to the study of CSAs in California's Central Valley, a big CSA is usually the sign of a highly diversified farm.
Why Lettuce Keeps Making Us Sick
Modern Farmer - 7/16/2013.
By Andre Gallant - Here’s the bad, and over-reported, news: Lettuce is making a lot of people sick. Earlier this year, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their comprehensive Attribution of Foodborne Illness for the years 1998 to 2008, news websites drummed up plenty of hits by reporting that lettuce, and their leafy ilk, account for nearly a quarter of all reported foodborne illnesses, due mainly to pre-cut greens bought in sealed, plastic bags at the grocery store.
Genetic engineering vs. natural breeding: What’s the difference?
Grist - 7/16/2013.
By Nathanael Johnson - If you are new to this series, I’ve been trying to break down the competing claims about genetic engineering. I’m not an expert: When I told a friend I was writing about GMOs he asked, “So are you for them, or against?” My answer: “I’m trying to figure that out.”

Bangor Daily News - 7/16/2013.
By Gabor Degre - Hanne Tierney runs a farm where they raise pigs and chickens and have a dairy cow, so they have milk for the family, and also a few horses for the fun of it. They sell certified organic pork products at farmers markets and three years ago Hanne began to cooperate with Clayton Carter, a fellow organic farmer who grows vegetables at Fail Better Farm in Etna.
