Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
For farmers everywhere, small is (still) beautiful
Yes! - 1/17/2012.
By Robin Broad, John Cavanagh – There is battle raging across the world over who can better feed its people: small-scale farmers practicing sustainable agriculture, or giant agribusinesses using chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It was small-scale organic farmers growing rice for themselves and local markets in the Philippines who first convinced us that they could feed both their communities and their country.

They document how elevated CO2 is "driving fish crazy."

There are plans for fish ponds and unique renewable energy elements that will make it extremely efficient.
