Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
For now, don’t eat the raspberries
St. John Valley Times - 8/26/2010.
St. John Valley: Residents are being advised by Irving Woodlands to “not eat the berries” and stay out of local areas being sprayed with aerial herbicides, at least until those herbicides have dried. The spraying is part of an ongoing forest-management plan to control competing vegetation on young plantations.
Food safety scrambled
Bangor Daily News - 8/26/2010.
Editorial – The pattern has become all too familiar: There is an outbreak of food-borne illness, the public demands tougher regulations, Congress pledges action and – nothing happens. In 2008, it was peanut butter, the year before spinach and jalapenos. Now, eggs. About 1,300 cases of salmonella are thought to be linked to eggs from two facilities in Iowa. A half-billion eggs have been recalled.
Community-supported fisheries – why they matter
The Working Waterfront - 8/26/2010.
By Rob Snyder – Perhaps more than anything else, the fishing families in Port Clyde became well known because they launched the nation's first community-supported fishing (CSF) operation, selling shares of their fish to consumers ahead of the fishing season based on the community-supported agriculture model.
The care and feeding of time machines
Energy Bulletin - 8/25/2010.
By John Michael Greer – The distinction between intensive and extensive food plant production discussed in last week’s post has implications that go well beyond the obvious. When you garden a backyard or a few acres intensively, you can spare the time, energy, and resources to do things you can’t do on an extensive farm of a few hundred acres, and the payback can be spectacular.
