Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Free-range eggs contain more Vitamin D
Mother Earth News - 3/5/2009.
By Cheryl Long – "Free range" refers to chickens being allowed to range freely outdoors where they can eat whatever grass, weed seeds, insects and worms they choose. This results in more nutritious eggs and meat for consumers, and more healthy, humane conditions for the birds.
Eat locally, or eat differently?
Organic Consumers - 3/4/2009.
By Erika Engelhaupt – Christopher Weber and H. Scott Matthews of Carnegie Mellon University examined the environmental benefits of eating locally grown foods and found them a bit lacking in the carbon-footprint department – eating less red meat and dairy turned out to be a better way to reduce greenhouse gases than an all-local diet, according to the pair's life-cycle assessment.
Food-backed local money
The Oil Drum - 3/4/2009.
By Jason Bradford – As a kid did you ever fantasize about Monopoly game money becoming real? I know I did. Perhaps that’s why I left the printer shop the other day with a sense of bemusement.

Robinson, acting director of the agriculture department’s National Organic Program, last week issued a directive to the 96 organizations that perform foreign and domestic organic inspections that they are obligated to look beyond pesticide levels and crop management techniques.
