Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Rhubarb – proving the big tang theory
Bangor Daily News - 5/27/2009.
By Emily Burnham – As it turns out, dear readers, you really, really, really love rhubarb. The homely-yet-handsome plant figures into a wealth of your recipes, many of which were submitted into the Bangor Daily News’ rhubarb recipe contest, which culminated with a taste-testing a week ago. Our judges included Bernadette Gaspar, co-owner of Frank’s Bake Shop in Bangor and herself a rhubarb fan; BDN photographer and amateur gourmand Kate Collins; and yours truly, who grew up eating her grandmother’s rhubarb pies and jams.
Gardening is growing as a practical matter
Boston Globe - 5/27/2009.
By Devra First – Flavia Graf Reardon is growing things. Lots of things. In the garden she shares with her husband, Tim, there are onions, leeks, carrots, peas, rhubarb, kale, collards, spinach, broccoli rabe, salad greens, raspberries, two kinds of cherries, currants, gooseberries, and many varieties of herbs. Far from rural, this homestead is a few blocks from Egleston Square on the Jamaica Plain/Roxbury line, where you're as likely to hear bass thumping from the cars on nearby Washington Street as crickets.
“The first step – organic food and a healthier future”: a critical issue report
Organic Center - 5/26/2009.
Overweight, obesity and diabetes are collectively the nation's number one public health problem. Effective interventions are urgently needed, especially among children and adolescents, in order to improve human well being and to slow, and hopefully soon, reduce growth in health care costs. This "Critical Issue Report" describes six ways that organic food and farming can contribute to reversing current trends in overweight, obesity, and diabetes.
Ecological economics and the food system
The Oil Drum - 5/26/2009.
By Jason Bradford – Setting aside any prolonged discussion of whether or what about the modern world should be saved, this essay is primarily about what it means to "get down to work" as Schumacher puts it. But very quickly, to me saving the modern world means setting a goal for the human economy to be properly scaled relative to the global ecology, and maintaining a sufficiency of social stability necessary to manage a transition.
