Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The year in food: The biggest edible news of ‘09 and predictions for 2010
Alternet - 12/28/2009.
By Ari LeVaux – As 2009 closes out, the dominant issues in the world of food could be lumped into two competing paradigms that have framed much of the decade. In one corner we have Big Food: factory farms, fast food restaurants, mystery meat, biotechnology and other examples of when the economics of scale are applied to how we feed ourselves. In the other corner is Small Food, whose players include farmers' markets, ecology-based agriculture and seasonal diets of minimally processed food.
Urban wasteland: just plow it under
Kennebec Journal - 12/28/2009.
By P.J. Huffstutter, Los Angeles Times – Detroit: On the city’s east side, where auto workers once assembled cars by the millions, nature is taking back the land. Cottonwood trees grow through the collapsed roofs of homes stripped clean for scrap metal. Wild grasses carpet the rusty shells of empty factories, now home to pheasants and wild turkeys. This green veil is proof of how far this city has fallen from its industrial heyday and, to a small group of investors, a clear sign. Detroit, they say, needs to get back to what it was before Henry Ford moved to town: farmland.
A Chemical Reaction Movie Screening At Railroad Square
MOFGA Announcements - 12/28/2009.
A Chemical Reaction. Movie screening at Railroad Square Cinema in Waterville on Sunday, January 10, 2010. One show only at 12:30 p.m. This documentary tells the story of a powerful and effective community initiative that started with one lone voice in 1984. Dr. June Irwin, a dermatologist, noticed a connection between her patients’ health conditions and their exposure to chemical pesticides and herbicides. With relentless persistence she brought her concerns to town meetings to warn her fellow citizens that the chemicals they were putting on their lawns posed severe health risks and had unknown side effects on the environment.
Local beehive builders are keeping busy
Kennebec Journal - 12/27/2009.
By Betty Jespersen – Farmington: Professional logger Jon Bogue got the itch to raise honeybees years ago. He discovered a honey tree deep in the woods and the experience of quietly observing wild bees at work captivated him. "It is fascinating. I enjoy it so much that it is something I wish I had started years before," he said.
