Southside CSA article on one-earth.com

A sparkly new article on the Southside CSA has just been posted at One-Earth.com.

One-Earth.com is a wiki-powered website which lists solutions to everyday environmental questions such as, “where can I compost my left over greens” and “eek – where can I take this girl I want to impress who is vegan?!”

Information is organized by city and by category (such as “home solutions” and “businesses and services”). And since we all like to think we know best, my favorite element is that it works like wikipedia – you can find resources in your neighborhood for environmental businesses, organizations and events and post it yourself! Yup, a website that actually thinks its users know best – bliss!

So come on SScsa – get posting! From the numerous emails we receive, I know y’all have much to share.

This site is brilliant and will get better and better as its users post on it.

Deeply Rooted

deeply rootedOn yesterday’s Leonard Lopate show on WNYC was a segment about a new book , “Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness“.  Promo line for the segment…

A century of industrialization has created a food system riddled with problems, yet we look to nutritionists and government agencies, scientists and chefs for solutions, instead of looking to the people who grow our food. Lisa M. Hamilton profiles three unconventional farmers in her new book . She will also be joined by Teresa Podoll, one of the independent farmers she spoke with in her book.

Check out the podcast here

Online you can listen to podcasts and watch videos of the guests as they take listeners to kitchens, markets, and restaurants.

Lots of yummy listening. Enjoy!
