Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Humans may face malnutrition if birds and bees disappear
Reuters - 8/13/2015.
By Lisa Rapaport - If all the birds, bugs, bees and other creatures that pollinate our food crops were to disappear from the planet, humans could face a sharp increase in malnutrition, disease and death in many parts of the world, scientists estimate.
Italy’s ban on neonicotinoids effective, U of G conference told
Guelph Mercury [Ontario] - 8/13/2015.
By Joanne Shuttleworth - Guelph: bees and other pollinators are critical to agriculture and as such they contribute to the economy. With their numbers in alarming decline, scientists around the world are working on the problem. Four of them were at the University of Guelph Wednesday evening for a panel discussion on the research they are doing and the implications for beekeepers and farmers. And the common result of their separate research is that the practice of treating seeds with neonicotinoids to make them pest-resistant is killing the bee population.
Old Dog Baking offers delicious new tricks
Mount Desert Islander - 8/13/2015.
By Liz Graves - In the wee hours of the morning, Steve Anastasia is hard at work in the kitchen at Sweet Pea Farm Café. Doing business as Old Dog Baking Company, he uses the wood-fired oven when it’s not in use by the café to make a variety of naturally leavened breads. The “naturally-leavened” part means they all have a native yeast ferment, otherwise known as a starter or levain. Sourdough bread is one classic made this way, but Old Dog also offers baguettes, ciabatta, semolina, rye and Maine-grown whole wheat.
