Sustainable Food for the Globe.

Modern Predators heading towards Africa.  ..."Three female food warriors taking centre stage in this battle are Kenya’s Professor Mary Abukutsa-Onyango, Tanzania’s Janet Maro and South Africa’s Mariam Mayet. Between them they are teaching the health benefits of Africa’s own indigenous plants, promoting the advantages of organic agriculture, and fighting the incursions of the multinationals into Africa."

What To Do With All of the Poo? - Modern Farmer

What To Do With All of the Poo? - Modern Farmer | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

"This has led some farmers to come up with enterprising ways to get rid of excess excrement. In addition to some growing interest in using manure for energy production, farmers are monetizing manure in the form of organic fertilizers that can be shipped around the country. According to the USDA, the poop from poultry and cattle feedlots is drier than that from dairy or hog farms. Turned into fertilizer pellets, the sterilized manure can be safely applied to fields without the worry that pathogens could contaminate the produce. Farrow visited one farmer who was making about $40,000 a year pelletizing and selling the waste from his 20,000 hens. That’s not insignificant income for a farmer."

GMO Golden Rice: The Scourge of Asia. Monsanto, Sygenta, Bayer Trigger Disruption of Peasant Economy | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

The introduction of GM rice for any reason, would threaten or potentially destroy the livelihood of hundreds of millions of people.Proponents of Golden Rice suggest rice farmers replace their profitable crops with genetically modified rice that will treat only one of many vitamin and mineral deficiencies they may or may not potentially suffer from, deficiencies that could be easily solved through other methods. Clearly illogical in terms of “helping” the malnourished, Golden Rice must serve another purpose.

This Is What A More Sustainable American Food System Looks Like

This Is What A More Sustainable American Food System Looks Like | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

Let’s be real: The American food system today has some pretty daunting issues. We’re saddled with a farming system that, on the whole, releases a massive amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere (675 million metric tons annually at the most recent tally, to be exact), sucks nutrients from the soil, and leaches chemicals into the water table. And in regions with some of the richest farmland, historically speaking, you can’t buy a fresh vegetable for love or money — but you can get a two-liter bottle of potable sugar and an endless variety of nutritionally vacant foodstuff approximations at any corner store. To that end, we find ourselves in the midst of a dietary and environmental crisis. We could ask, “How did we get here?”, but I’m not trying to answer that question. There are many possible culprits at whom we could point fingers, but what’s much, much more important is how we get ourselves out of this mess.

Diet For A Small Planet - Wikipedia

Diet for a Small Planet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Diet for a Small Planet is a 1971 bestselling book by Frances Moore Lappé, the first major book to note the environmental impact of meat production as wasteful and a contributor to global food scarcity.

The book has sold over three million copies and was groundbreaking for arguing that world hunger is not caused by a lack of food but by ineffective food policy. In addition to information on meat production and its impact on hunger, the book features simple rules for a healthy diet and hundreds of meat-free recipes. "Its mix of recipes and analysis typified radicals' faith in the ability to combine personal therapy with political activism."[1]
