    • Urban Growth Boundary: Oregon Agriculture and Managed Growth
      Oregon is among the very few states, and the Portland area, of the even fewer major metro areas, that have for decades effectively fought back the forces of development, and resisted converting ever more parcels of urban land for re-zoning to industrial and commercial use, overemployed in other places under the banner of job creation and the promise of wider economic prosperity. Since the 1970's, growth in the Portland area has been confined within carefully crafted boundaries, the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), outside of which, urban growth was not allowed to occur.moreless

    • Joan Dye Gussow: This Organic Life
      9/17/12
      0.0
      Joan Dye Gussow is one of those rare individuals who act upon their own convictions whether it is of popular held belief, or not. Raising a young family in Congers, NY, and working on her graduate degree at Columbia University, she came to the realization that accessing our food in a global way, one that was dependent on transportation (and a finite resource of oil), was not going to last.It made more sense to obtain food locally -- from farmers, food producers, and yes, even from a garden in your own back yard. This was in the 1960's; clearly a person way ahead of her time.moreless

      0.0
      Though this interview was conducted in 2007, and pertains specifically to the previous Farm Bill of that year, the next Farm Bill is coming up in 2012. Much of what Dan Imhoff says in this video equally applies to the upcoming Farm Bill legislation of 2012. Many of us don't pay close attention to pending federal legislation but most food experts agree, this bill is the most important legislation on the federal docket.moreless
    • The Growing Face of Modern Hunger in America
      Originally published on Cooking Up a Story in April of 2009. Their numbers are well documented on government statistics, and survey results. Their highest counts are located in the following 10 States: Mississippi, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Maine, South Carolina, Georgia, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri*. There are 36.2 million of them; 12.4 million are children. For the most part, this group does not comprise the mentally ill, criminals, or those we may criticize as being lazy or stupid; indeed, many are of the working poor. They are like you and I perhaps, except for one thing: they live just above (or below) the poverty line, and they must struggle at times to obtain food to eat. They are the silent citizens of the food insecure nation: America.moreless

    • A Conversation with Anna Lapp--
      3/20/12
      0.0
      The first thing one notices about Anna Lapp--, author of the new book, Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do about It, she knows how to focus abstract, interrelated concepts, such as industrial agriculture, and food system, into concrete terms as they relate to climate change concerns. Not only will agriculture be effected by rapid changes in weather conditions brought on by climate change, the food system itself (the entire process by which food reaches the end of our fork) is the largest single emitter of atmospheric greenhouse gases that drive climate change effects.moreless
