Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine Gardener: An indelible vision for an edible world
Portland Press Herald - 3/27/2011.
by Tom Atwell. Permaculture is becoming a larger part of our culture. Kristin DeSouza, senior horticulturist and plant records coordinator at the New England Wild Flower Society, and Lisa Fernandes, a permaculturist in Cape Elizabeth, gave separate lectures related to the subject earlier this month at the Portland Flower Show.
SHEAR excitement
Portland Press Herald - 3/27/2011.
by Deirdre Fleming. Raising chickens and shopping at local farms are growing in popularity in Maine. And sheep farming is evolving right in step. The Maine Sheep Breeders Association's shearing class last weekend sold out quickly, and that's become the norm.
Mind Games How toxic chemicals are impairing children’s ability to learn
Orion - 3/25/2011.
by Sandra Steingraber. A family of substances that impair the growth of the brain in ways that interfere with learning takes many forms, according to a major review of the evidence published in 2006 in the British medical journal The Lancet. Some of them are heavy metals, such as lead and methylmercury. Some are long-outlawed compounds that still linger among us (PCBs). One common one is used to strip paint, turn crude oil into gasoline, extract natural gas from shale, and suspend pigment in some nail polishes (toluene). Another two hundred chemicals are known to act as neurological poisons in human adults and are likely toxic to the developing brains of infants and children as well — animal studies strongly suggest that any neurotoxic chemical is likely also a neurodevelopmental toxicant —but scientific confirmation awaits.
Organic farming just as productive as conventional, and better at building soil, Rodale finds
Grist - 3/25/2011.
by Tom Philpott. A lot of powerful people -- including the editors of The Economist -- insist that organic agriculture is a fine luxury for the rich, but it could never feed the world as global population moves to 9 billion. But the truth could well be the opposite: It might be chemical-intensive agriculture that's the frivolous luxury, and organic that offers us the right technologies in a resource-constrained, ever-warmer near future.
