Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Secret Merger Plan Created for State Agencies
Down East - 12/13/2011.
by George Smith. The LePage administration has prepared a detailed plan for the governor’s proposed merger of the Departments of Agriculture and Conservation, although it has not been circulated and its existence was a surprise to some key people in those agencies whom I contacted for comments.
The bugs that ate Monsanto
Grist - 12/13/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – Now that 94 percent of the soy and 70 percent of the corn grown in the U.S. are genetically modified, Monsanto – one of the companies that dominates the GMO seed market – might look to some like it's winning. But if we look a little closer, I'd say they're holding on by a thread.
Young farmers work to change 2012 Farm Bill
Grist - 12/13/2011.
By Lindsey Lusher Shute – Across the U.S., young people are heeding the call for a more just, sustainable, and healthy food system, and are heading to the fields to build it themselves. They are working on farms and starting their own small-scale farm businesses from scratch. But, as the National Young Farmers' Coalition recently revealed, there are big obstacles getting in the way of these green entrepreneurs.
How designing smarter farmers’ markets will help our cities survive
Treehugger - 12/13/2011.
By Lloyd Alter – Daniel Carmody, President of the Eastern Market in Detroit, is a passionate speaker, and entranced many of us attending the National Trust for Historic Preservation conference in Buffalo this fall. It seemed, at first, an odd choice of speaker at a conference about old buildings. But in fact, he demonstrated how important the growing and distribution of food can be to the rebirth and revitalization of our cities and towns.
