Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organics growing both big and small; annual local conference begins Thursday
Guelph Mercury [Ontario] - 1/30/2010.
By Rob O’Flanagan – Organic agriculture is growing, and growing in two distinct directions – within the confines of the small family farm or community shared farm, and within the domain of big corporate farming. Values can differ greatly in these two worlds and those values are sure to meet, and likely clash at the 29th annual Guelph Organic Conference, which begins Thursday at the University of Guelph.
Diversity is key to planting vegetables
Bangor Daily News - 1/30/2010.
By Reeser Manley – Last week, reading about the importance of plant species diversity in ecosystems, it occurred to me that biodiversity is also an important consideration in planning the vegetable garden, that the wise gardener will avoid monoculture, or the planting of large expanses of a single crop, in favor of mixed plantings.

Bangor Daily News - 1/30/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – This is the time of year when we see tiny Maine shrimp for sale by the side of the road up and down the coast and in the stores, too. This year the shrimp season has been extended to the end of May because there are enough of them to warrant it. I like this shrimp and finally concluded it is worth my while to buy it already peeled because I’ve just plain run out of patience with pulling the heads off the prickly little things.
EU farmers face genetic contamination of seeds
Common Dreams - 1/29/2010.
By Julio Godoy – Berlin: Biodiversity, already decaying fast as a result of climate change and intensive farming, is under further threat by genetic modification (GM) of seeds, says a leading German ecological activist. Genetic modification of seeds is dangerous, "since it is at the beginning of the agricultural chain, and can spread all over," says Benedikt Haerlin, former campaign manager at the environmental organization Greenpeace and former member of the European Parliament.
