Sustainable agriculture doesn’t end at harvest. Efficient use of every crop component is an important part of sustainable production.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Can we protect kids from the toxic trappings of modern life?
Grist - 9/18/2009.
by Vanessa Kerr – From Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring to current headlines in the news, there’s long been mounting evidence that we’re being poisoned by everyday items in our lives. I was crushed by the revelation that my trusty Nalgene bottle was leaching bisphenol A into my Brita-filtered water.
A second course of food glory
Portland Press Herald - 9/18/2009.
By Meredtih Goad – At Evangeline, Erik Desjarlais has been taking a lot of calls from customers who fear they soon will be unable to get a reservation at his restaurant in Longfellow Square. Desjarlais was one of several chefs who were featured in a long article about the Portland food scene in the dining section of The New York Times on Wednesday. "They're saying, 'I really hope you're not jam-packed tonight because of the article,'" he said.
White House hosts farmers’ market
Grist - 9/17/2009.
By Eddie Gehman Kohan – Despite rain and cold temperatures, today’s opening of the new White House Farmer’s Market drew quite a crowd. “I’ve never seen so many people so excited about fruits and vegetables!” First Lady Michelle Obama told the crowd gathered on the White House lawn. Agriculture Secretary Secretary Tom Vilsack turned out for the Market’s debut, along with White House chefs Sam Kass and Bill Yosses. The White House Farmer’s Market will run through the fall.
Plight of the bumblebee
Earth Island Journal - 9/17/2009.
By Adam Federman – Bombus franklini, a North American bumblebee, was last seen on August 9, 2006. Professor Emeritus Robbin Thorp, an entomologist at UC Davis, was doing survey work on Mt. Ashland in Oregon when he saw a single worker on a flower, Sulphur eriogonum, near the Pacific Crest Trail. He had last seen the bee in 2003, roughly in the same area, where it had once been very common. “August ninth,” Thorp says. “I’ve got that indelibly emblazoned in my mind.”
