Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Get out and garden
Kennebec Journal - 4/17/2010.
Op-ed by Theodora Kalikow – It’s spring! The garden is a mess! Time to get out the gloves and knee-pads, put on the old clothes and get out there and clean it all up. Welcome all the new little flowers, smell the grass, listen to the birds, plant the peas and lettuce and spinach, and – the only good thing about global warming so far – get it all done before the black flies show up.
France's food fight
Boston Globe - 4/17/2010.
By Derrick Z. Jackson – Sebastien Czernichow is a French nutrition researcher cheering on America’s flurry of federal, state, and local laws and initiatives against obesity. What some call the food police, he calls progress. The prevalence of obesity in his nation is leveling off after a decade of government interventions.
Sounding the call for local food
Kennebec Journal - 4/16/2010.
By Daniel Hartill – Lewiston: Russell Libby believes big grocers' ability to fill fruit and produce aisles with almost any food at any time has dulled shoppers' wits and dinner-table variety. Taste buds are dying, he said. "It's all those little nuances," said Libby, executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. Try Maine apples, for example. "In September, October and early November, a McIntosh is a superb apple," Libby said. "The rest of the year, it's a good apple." The reason? The fruit grows soft even in the best storage conditions, he said. "You have to ask, 'What is right for the right season?'" he said.
Chickens easy, fun to raise, lay lots of eggs, become good stew
Kennebec Journal - 4/16/2010.
Op-ed by Denis Thoet – Of all the farm animals, chickens are among the easiest to raise, and they are probably the most productive pound for pound. At their peak, each can lay an egg a day. Their manure is essential for our garden, and after two or three years, they get to become part of the best stew or pot pie you’ve ever tasted.
