7 ways to cook up a sustainable diet
Yes! - 9/17/2011.
By Vicki Robin – A year ago, I undertook a month-long experiment in making the "idea" of eating local a daily practice: For one month, I ate only food that was produced within a 10-mile radius of my home on Whidbey Island, Washington. The diet forced me to confront my habits, preferences, and obsessions. I had to learn to cook from only what's at hand, and understand my unique place on the earth – with its land and farmers and food – as never before.
Global warming brings exotic fish to British waters, but at a cost
The Guardian [UK] - 9/16/2011.
By Steven Morris – Global warming is leading to "profound" population changes in most common fish species in waters off the UK, according to the first "big picture" study of rising sea temperatures. Around three-quarters of the species affected have grown in numbers, the government-funded study claims. While cold water-loving species such as cod and haddock fare badly, those that can do well in warmer conditions including hake, dab and red mullet are thriving.
The old becomes new again as farms return to human laborers
Kennebec Journal - 9/16/2011.
By Denis Thoet – Since we are a human-powered farm, I thought it might be interesting to consider what that means in relation to other tractor- and horse-powered farm operations. So I checked Wikipedia to get an idea of what human power is compared to a standard measurement like horsepower. It turns out that a "healthy human can produce 1.2 horsepower briefly and can sustain 0.1 horsepower indefinitely." That means that our four apprentices, plus me, can turn out between 0.5 hp all day long or 5 hp in rapid bursts during the day. Pretty impressive.
