Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Soaring food prices, wild weather, upheaval, and a planetful of trouble
Common Dreams - 7/20/2011.
By Christian Parenti – What can a humble loaf of bread tell us about the world? The answer is: far more than you might imagine. For one thing, that loaf can be “read” as if it were a core sample extracted from the heart of a grim global economy. Looked at another way, it reveals some of the crucial fault lines of world politics, including the origins of the Arab spring that has now become a summer of discontent.
Garlic scape pesto
Bangor Daily News - 7/19/2011.
By Sandy Oliver – If you plant your garlic bulbs in mid-October, in mid-July, as sure as the sun rises in the east, each plant sends up a dramatic flower shoot, called a scape, right out of the center of the plant. The scape shoot makes a spiral, and its white flower head looks for all the world like a bird’s head with a long green bill.
Eating less, better meat: yes we can
Civil Eats - 7/18/2011.
By Lisa Frack – I’m a vegetarian. But my husband’s not. And, go figure, my kids aren’t either. Which is exactly why I care about the meat I buy. Yes, I buy meat. I’d rather not, but if it’s coming into the house–and into my kids’ bodies – then I need to know exactly what I’m buying. And I not only want to know how it’s affecting my family’s health, I also care deeply about how it’s affecting our family’s environmental footprint (including climate change).
Sustainable animal feed
Soil Association UK - 7/18/2011.
Our new report, Feeding the animals that feed us, opens the urgently needed debate on how we can move away from feeding our farm animals grains and imported proteins, and promotes more sustainable alternatives such as increased grazing and use of home-grown feed.
