Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers go wild
Yes! - 2/6/2012.
By Abby Quillen – “Frogs are an indicator species,” Jack Gray explains, leaning over a small, muddy pond to look for tadpoles. Here on the 170-acre Winter Green Farm, 20 miles west of Eugene, Ore., Gray has raised cattle and grown vegetables and berries for 30 years. Gray, his wife, Mary Jo, and two other families co-own Winter Green Farm. They are committed to something Jo Ann Baumgartner, director of the Wild Farm Alliance, calls “farming with the wild.”
Grant builds interesting magnet school
Kennebec Journal - 2/5/2012.
By Beth Quimby – Fairfield: Lisa Sandy is getting a lot of phone calls these days. Sandy, the admissions director at the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences, said interest in the school has spiked since Jan. 23, when the Harold Alfond Foundation announced its $10.85 million gift to the Maine Community College System and to Good Will-Hinckley, home of the academy.
Obesogens: An Environmental Link to Obesity
Environmental Health Perspectives - 2/3/2012.
Obesity is rising steadily around the world. Convincing evidence suggests that diet and activity level are not the only factors in this trend—chemical “obesogens” may alter human metabolism and predispose some people to gain weight. Fetal and early-life exposures to certain obesogens may alter some individuals’ metabolism and fat-cell makeup for life. Other obesogenic effects are linked to adulthood exposures.
From mountain to sea: a vision for the rebuilding of Tohoku
OurWorld 2.0 - 2/3/2012.
By Anne McDonald and Brendan Barrett – Why would a fisher care about the forest? The person to ask is Shigeatsu Hatakeyama, an oyster farmer from Kesennuma in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture. We can learn a great deal from Hatakeyama. He is one of those rare types of people who can see beyond the day-to-day preoccupation of how to make a living – in his case, with an oyster farm – and instead embrace the world around them.
