Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
An exaltation of apples
Zester Daily - 9/15/2010.
By Nancy Harmon Jenkins – Tarte Tatin was invented, so we are told, late in the 19th century by one of the two Tatin sisters, les demoiselles Tatin, who kept a restaurant, the Hotel-Terminus Tatin, in the Loire valley town of Lamotte-Beuvron.

‘High-fructorse corn syrup’? Never heard of it
Grist - 9/14/2010.

The AP is reporting that the group has petitioned the FDA for permission to identify high-fructose corn syrup on food packaging as – wait for it – "corn sugar."

Village Soup - 9/13/2010.
By Jean English – Seven years ago, Lynn and Charlie Biebel of Monroe attended a demonstration at the Maine Organic Gardeners and Farmers Association's Common Ground Country Fair about the “lasagna method” of starting a garden. They’ve been cooking up fantastic gardens ever since.

Pingree – Many of the 1.5 million people who were diagnosed with cancer last year would probably say they did everything right – they never smoked, they ate well and they exercised. With some forms of cancers on the rise, especially among children, even as our awareness of healthy lifestyle choices improves, we need to ask ourselves a tough question: What are the hidden causes of illness that we have ignored?
