Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Blueberries Morning, Noon and Night
The New York Times - 1/29/2010.
By Tara Parker-Pope – Frozen blueberries are one of the foods I wrote about in “The 11 Best Foods You Aren’t Eating.” These nutrient-rich fruits are available year-round and don’t spoil, and blueberries have been associated with better memory in animal studies. In this week’s Recipes for Health, Martha Rose Shulman expands on ways to add blueberries to your breakfast, lunch or dinner.
EU farmers face genetic contamination of seeds
Common Dreams - 1/29/2010.
By Julio Godoy – Berlin: Biodiversity, already decaying fast as a result of climate change and intensive farming, is under further threat by genetic modification (GM) of seeds, says a leading German ecological activist. Genetic modification of seeds is dangerous, "since it is at the beginning of the agricultural chain, and can spread all over," says Benedikt Haerlin, former campaign manager at the environmental organization Greenpeace and former member of the European Parliament.
Bill encourages schools to buy food from local farms
MetroWest Daily News - 1/29/2010.
By Laura Krantz – Boston: A bill making its way through the Legislature would try to make it easier for farmers in Massachusetts to sell their fresh produce to the area's schools. The bill, which passed the House yesterday, prohibits junk food in public schools, and an amendment to the bill calls for research to be done on what local food is available and what schools are interested in.
72,000 chickens perish in Belfast barn fire
Bangor Daily News - 1/29/2010.
By Abigail Curtis – Belfast: The city once known for its chickens lost 72,000 of them early Thursday morning in a fire that also consumed a three-story, 500-foot-long poultry barn on the Back Searsport Road. “Things happen, I guess,” said Merle Grass, the owner of the 1976 chicken barn and the last large-scale raiser in the area. “I probably won’t rebuild. The cost is going to be a lot more than my insurance is going to pay.”
