"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."
- Albert Howard, The Soil and Health, 1947

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
How Smart Cafeterias Could Fight Childhood Obesity
The Atlantic - 10/26/2010.
By David R. Just and Brian Wansink – How do people celebrate National School Lunch week? If you asked around, you'd never hear of any parties or parades – all you'd hear are laughs. Even though over 30 million children are fed by the National School Lunch Program, school lunches are bullied daily by critics, activists, and celebrity chefs and blamed for contributing to childhood obesity.
What a ‘sweet surprise’! HFCS contains more fructose than believed
Grist - 10/26/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – One of industry's main arguments against critics' targeting high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as Public Health Enemy No. 1 has been that HFCS and table sugar are chemically similar. … Now it turns out that the actual amount of fructose in HFCS in particular food products has never been officially disclosed, just assumed. And that assumption, much to the surprise of even the biggest HFCS-is-bad skeptics, has just been proven way off.

Grist - 10/25/2010.
By Elanor Starmer – It's been a long two years since Congress started debating the passage of a new food safety law. While our legislators were busy pontificating, wave after wave of contaminated-food recalls washed across the country, leaving unsuspecting eaters gagging in their wake. Meanwhile, the internet has surged with rumors claiming that if passed, the bills will give the FDA the power to outlaw organic practices or backyard food-growing.
Our biofuel future: The bitter taste of land grabs and hunger
Grist - 10/22/2010.
By Ashley Braun – I admit I haven't been paying the most attention to the topic of biofuels the past few years, after studies made fairly clear that the social, energy, and environmental benefits of the predominant player, corn ethanol, were generally overhyped when factors like oily fertilizers and the wisdom of converting more land to corn came into play.
