Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Apple growers ‘fairly optimistic’
Portland Press Herald - 8/13/2012.
(AP) – Montpelier, Vt.: At the mercy of Mother Nature, apple growers in northern New England are often pessimistic at the start of the season. So when an early spring was followed by a frost, they watched closely in the coming months for signs of damage.
Carson still a force of nature 50 years after Silent Spring
Maine Sunday Telegram - 8/12/2012.
By North Cairn – Some hailed her as a prophet of the environmental movement; others disparaged her work as alarmist and lacking scientific rigor. But there is no doubt that Rachel Carson and her writings were virtually a force of nature in the 1950s and '60s. And still are today.
No small potatoes
Maine Sunday Telegram - 8/12/2012.
By Meg Jones (McClatchy Newspapers) – Sturgeon Bay, Wis.: Stored inside a nondescript building and greenhouse in Door County is the equivalent of much of the world's potato blueprints. Wisconsin is home to many things, but it's safe to say few know the globe's largest collection of wild and cultivated potato species are located here.
“A conversation with Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson”
The Hedgehog Review - 8/11/2012.
By Joshua J. Yates – Why has the term “sustainability” become so popular, and is it useful? [Berry:] I’ll go out on a limb, and Wes can saw it off. We’re stuck with this word because of the obvious need to sustain the things that we’re not sustaining. But by itself, the word doesn’t mean very much because no word means much by itself. If you’re going to make use of this word, you have to find a context for it in which it can mean something.
