Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Too many agencies in the kitchen
Bangor Daily News - 3/8/2011.
Editorial – The fact that 15 federal agencies oversee food safety should outrage anyone. It is a waste of money – which Congress is focusing on now. Worse, it is a huge threat to the public’s health as shown by recent food contamination incidents.
Nature strikes back: climate change is beginning in earnest
Portland Press Herald - 3/8/2011.
By Dwight Swisher – Trevett: Recent observations and developments in climate science show urgent new information about our planet's unexpectedly rapid response to warming. For those who love their children and grandchildren, this message is meant as an urgent wake-up call.
Low-interest investment club is No Small Potatoes
Portland Press Herald - 3/8/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Thirty Acre Farm is known for its lacto-fermented pickles, sauerkrauts and kimchis, which are made without added vinegar or sugar at the organic farm in Whitefield. The popular products can be found at health food stores and farmers markets, and they're distributed by Crown O' Maine Organic Cooperative.
The future is organic: but it’s more than organic!
Energy Bulletin - 3/7/2011.
By Dr. E. Ann Clark – Organic will be the conventional agriculture of the future, not because of wishful thinking or because it is the right thing to do, or because of some universal truth revealed from on high. You don’t need to be a utopian to see the agricultural landscape of the future dominated by organic practitioners – whether in the city or in the country – if you stop to ask yourself … why are we not organic now?
