Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine farmers offer peek behind barn doors
Portland Press Herald - 7/21/2013.
By Beth Quimby - Freeport: Barn doors were flung open, fresh produce samples arranged on trays and farm equipment rolled out as dozens of farms welcomed the public Sunday during Maine Open Farm Day.
GMOs in Organics? Seriously?
Organic Connections - 7/21/2013.
By Ken Roseboro - Proponents of biotech­nol­ogy have recently pro­posed inte­grat­ing genet­i­cally mod­i­fied organ­isms into organic agri­cul­ture. Spearheading this con­cept are Pamela Ronald, a pro­fes­sor of plant pathol­ogy at the University of California-Davis, and her hus­band Raoul Adamchak, an organic farmer at the UC-Davis’s cer­ti­fied organic farm.
Cheap food is an addiction we must break
The Guardian [UK] - 7/20/2013.
By Tobias Jones - The brilliant American writer Wendell Berry once wrote that "eating is an agricultural act". His point was that since we all eat, we're all responsible for the state of our agriculture. So if things are sorely amiss in our insane food chain, us munching consumers, as much as producers and the demonised retailers, should shoulder the blame.

By Tom Philpott - Normally I ignore the latest diet craze. But I can't resist the message of Jo Robinson's new book Eating on the Wild Side. In it, Robinson argues that humanity's 10,000-year-old fixation on agriculture has stripped our most commonly eaten foods of most of their phytonutrients, which are plant-based chemical compounds that keep us healthy.
