Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
From farm to pharma: how animals ended up living confinement feedlots guzzling antibiotics
Alternet - 7/6/2009.
By Will Allen – We are now living in a post fast-food-awareness reality, riding on the wake of Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser's books (who rode on the wake of Wendell Berry), films like Food, Inc., renegade farmer heros like Joel Salatin and Eliot Coleman, and the ever-increasing popularity of urban gardening and locavores. But awareness, like anything, has its dark side. Perhaps the hardest thing we post fast-food-aware people face now, is actually doing something – apart from reading the book and watching the movie, that is.
What’s become of school lunch?
Grist - 7/5/2009.
By Tom Philpott – Remember back in April, when I bemoaned Obama’s choice of an industry-friendly school-lunch overseer? The job of administering the USDA’s school-lunch program went to Janey Thornton. She had made her name serving in several capacities for the School Nutrition Association – a conglomeration of school cafeteria managers who have never seen a Tyson chicken nugget they didn’t try to serve to a kid.
EBT card grant applications too farmer-unfriendly
Kennebec Journal - 7/5/2009.
Farmers are very busy people. They're usually up before dawn and spend their long days in backbreaking physical work to sow, tend and harvest crops or manage livestock. They must foil attacks by pests or diseases, they have to be geniuses at repairing ancient and cranky equipment, and their skill with pesky and potentially destructive creatures must also be applied in relationships to the bankers who underwrite their operations.
Lettuce likes the rain, but gardeners are pining for sunshine
Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/5/2009.
By Tom Atwell and Ray Routhier – The gardening season is not lost. The people inspired by the bad economy and Michelle Obama's White House vegetable garden to grow their own food still have a chance to succeed. The warm-weather crops are suffering but not dead, experienced gardeners and advisers to new gardeners say, and a lot of cool weather crops are thriving. "I think we can't write off this gardening season yet," said Roger Doiron of Scarborough, director of Kitchen Gardeners International, who led a campaign to have the new president plant a garden on the White House lawn. "Things have certainly slowed down in my garden, but nothing has been knocked out."
