UN: only small farmers and agroecology can feed the world
The Ecologist - 9/23/2014.
By Nafeez Ahmed - Governments must shift subsidies and research funding from agro-industrial monoculture to small farmers using 'agroecological' methods, according to the UN's Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. And as Nafeez Ahmed notes, her call coincides with a new agroecology initiative within the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation.
How your Tax Dollars are Helping Distort the GMO-Labeling Debate
Food & Water Watch - 9/23/2014.
By Tim Schwab - Our nation’s taxpayer-funded cooperative extension program, created by Congress 100 years ago with a mission to conduct education and outreach around important agricultural topics, has been largely silent in the raging public debate on the potential labeling of GMOs. If so desired, the USDA and our fifty states could marshal their army of extension officers and specialists to weigh in. Perhaps wisely, extension has not taken a position.
Joe McGurn: Common Ground Country Fair, 2014
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 9/22/2014.
Photographer Joe McGurn spent Sept. 20 at the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity and captured faces and scenes. The three-day fair is one of the most popular early fall destinations for visitors and locals alike, with nearly 60,000 making the trek western Waldo County. Almost the entire fair is held outside in the open, or under cover in a tent or barn, and usually, foul weather has no bearing on fair goers' motivation to get out and enjoy the varied experience.
