Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic begins with seed
The Washington Post - 1/31/2013.
By Barbara Damrosch - A seed purveyor needs to be right on top of the trends, and Renee Shepherd is no exception. She sells seed packets to home gardeners online at Reneesgarden.com and through gardening retailers. The “hot new trends” she identifies in her spring media kit include heirlooms, rainbow vegetables, container plants and ones that nurture beneficial insects. Leading the list is organic seed, of which she has a new line.
Scientists investigate possible connection between autism and vitamin D
Environmental Health News - 1/31/2013.
By Brita Belli - Vitamin D plays a pivotal role in a number of disorders. Now scientists are investigating whether the “sunshine vitamin” could be implicated in autism. With autism rates climbing and levels of vitamin D declining because of more sunscreen use and less time spent outdoors, scientists have begun to look into a possible link.
