Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The power of local
Common Dreams - 2/26/2010.
By Jeff Milchen – The 2009 holiday season was a tough one for retail businesses. In November, their sales increased just 1.8 percent over low 2008 numbers-failing to keep pace with inflation. December was worse, with sales actually falling three tenths of a percent from 2008. But in more than a hundred communities across North America, independent community-based businesses had a more positive story to tell.
7 reasons why you should grow your own food
Alternet - 2/26/2010.
By Judi Gerber – Not that being part of a trend is ever a good reason to start or learn something new, but if it helps you move forward by being part of the "in" crowd, then you really need to plant your own edible garden this year. That's right, having your own vegetable garden is now trendy. In fact according to the 2009 Edibles Gardening Trends Research Report conducted by the Garden Writer’s Association (GWA) Foundation, over 41 million U.S. households, or 38 percent planted a vegetable garden in 2009.
Agricultural fairs offering public a share of harvests
Portland Press Herald - 2/26/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Mainers who want an easy, affordable way to ''eat local'' can link up with farmers Sunday at any of a dozen community-supported agricultural fairs to be held around the state. More than 80 farmers, fishermen and community organizations will take part in the fourth annual fair, which connects consumers with sources of fresh produce and seafood by offering seasonal shares in local farms and fishing businesses.
Looks like the new Agrarian Age has arrived
Energy Bulletin - 2/25/2010.
By Gene Logsdon – I define “new agrarian age” as a society in which rural and urban lifestyles become indistinguishable. Roof top vegetable gardens in downtown Manhattan for instance. A more typical example is a landscape where urban agriculture and rural manufacturing exist side by side in harmony. I saw a photo recently of horses plowing a large garden plot with the Cleveland, Ohio, city skyline in the background.
