Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Why is genetically modified bluegrass exempt from Federal regulation?
Treehugger - 7/8/2011.
By Matthew McDermott – In the head scratcher of the week, New York Times reports that the US Department of Agriculture has decided that genetically modified bluegrass developed by Scotts Miracle-Gro can be sold without any federal oversight. The grass seed, intended for lawns, has been modified to be resistant to the popular herbicide Roundup.
That Perfect Florida Tomato, Cultivated for Bland Uniformity
The New York Times - 7/7/2011.
Review of Barry Estabrook's book, Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit.To get a successful tomato crop in Florida, growers pump the soil full of chemical fertilizers and can blast the plants with more than 100 different herbicides and pesticides, including some of the most toxic in agribusiness’s arsenal. Migrant workers are coated with these chemicals too. The toll that’s taken on them, in the form of birth defects, cancer and other ailments, is hideous to observe and should fill those who eat Florida tomatoes with shame.

Located on the back side of Peaks Island, the farm is a new enterprise created by resident Mark Shain, following a permaculture model.
