Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
GM soy linked to illnesses in farm pigs
Institute for Science in Society - 6/27/2012.
Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji – A Danish farmer has gained huge public recognition for publishing his simple method for ridding his pigs of illness – removing genetically modified (GM) ingredients from their diet. The pigs had suffered from symptoms including chronic diarrhoea, birth defects, reproductive problems, reduced appetite, bloating, stomach ulcers, weaker and smaller piglets, and reduced litter sizes.
How to start your own farm
Smith Meadows Farm - 6/27/2012.
By Forrest Pritchard – You’ve dreamed of becoming a farmer, growing food not just for yourself, but for your greater community. You want to live a life in harmony with the seasons, the soil, the moment. It’s a life of physical work, intellectual challenges, and uncertain finances, but you know that you’re ready. All that’s left is to trade in your suit and tie for sturdy boots and a dilapidated hat.
Scientists warn US east coast over accelerated sea level rise
The Guardian [UK] - 6/24/2012.
By Damian Carrington – Sea level rise is accelerating three to four times faster along the densely populated east coast of the US than other US coasts, scientists have discovered. The zone, dubbed a "hotspot" by the researchers, means the ocean from Boston to New York to North Carolina is set to experience a rise up a third greater than that seen globally.

Stanford University News - 6/22/2012.
By Max McClure – To keep up with projected demand, farming output will need to double in the next few decades. This inconvenient fact is bad news for the environment as a whole, and biodiversity in particular.
