Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Grocers see benefits of green certification
Portland Press Herald - 7/17/2011.
By Beth Quimby – The doors on the refrigerated cases at Rosemont Bakery and Market on Brighton Avenue in Portland contain energy efficient glass that doesn't require heat to keep them from fogging up when opened. The market's head butcher, Jarrod Spangler, eschews all power tools on the job, and cuts all the meats and stuffs sausages by hand.
City of Toronto changes ordinances to allow front-yard vegetable gardens
Treehugger - 7/14/2011.
By Colleen Vanderlinden – Last summer, the Oliveira family of Toronto planted a front yard vegetable garden. Their four children loved it, the neighbors admired it, and the Oliveira family enjoyed harvesting home grown food from their yard. The city of Toronto's Traffic Planning Department did not share their enthusiasm. They issued a letter telling the family they had to remove the garden.
A way to save America’s bees: buy free-range beef
The Atlantic - 7/14/2011.
By Nicolette Hahn Niman – Here on our ranch, the yard and gardens are now humming with so many busy bees that if I let our two-year-old go barefoot outside, I'd probably get arrested for child endangerment. Meanwhile, a suburban woman recently complained to me that she hadn't seen a single bee in her garden this year. This contrast would make perfect sense to scientists at the University of California - Berkeley, who've just released a study showing that grazing lands provide critical habitats for wild bees and other pollinators.
Kids & kale?
Portland Press Herald - 7/13/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Anyone who believes preschoolers won't eat broccoli or kale, let alone try tempeh or quinoa, needs to take a trip to the Youth & Family Outreach daycare center in Portland. During the past six months, the center has completely revamped its menus, eliminating processed foods in favor of whole and locally grown foods prepared from scratch.
