Amaranth revival - Mexican farmers rediscover an ancient superfood - The Ecologist (blog) | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

Amaranth is high in folic acid (lysine), a B-vitamin, essential during pregnancy. A deficiency in this vitamin can cause neurological disorders such as spina-bifida. Folic acid can also be found in liver, leafy green vegetables, broccoli and peas, although with these foods, much of it is lost in the cooking process.

Radical hope for saving ocean fisheries – Megan Molteni – Aeon

Radical hope for saving ocean fisheries – Megan Molteni – Aeon | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
Hope for the world's devastated oceans rests on a change in the hearts of the fishermen that know them best

.................""""""""""""""""""""""""""".................

........ 

The modernisation of the world’s fishing fleets was good for fishermen, but it was very bad for fish. Looking back at historical catch data, scientists estimate that the marine biomass of open-ocean communities declined by 80 per cent within 15 years of industrialised exploitation. The ocean has lost more than 90 per cent of its large predatory fishes — iconic species such as the bluefin tuna, the Atlantic cod, and the Pacific halibut.

 

How did this happen in less than a century? The simple answer is hubris. The notion that we could take and take from the seemingly limitless bounty of the sea without consequences has permeated everything from governmental policy to management efforts to fishing culture for decades. You see it in the government-subsidised expansion of the US fishing fleet despite falling catch rates; in modern management strategies that enabled fishermen to catch as much as possible in a given time frame; in a supply chain that encourages opacity and deceit at every stage. However, the more complicated answer is that we have managed (and mismanaged) economic incentives, consumer markets, scientific data, environmental policy and, above all, individual accountability. Fishermen get much of the blame for the state in which we find ourselves — this ‘race to the last fish’ — but they didn’t build this system by themselves.

 

They are, however, the ones with the power to change it.

Sustainable Food for the Globe. Permaculture Techniques.  It is very interesting to learn that many of today's pharmaceuticals are derived from healing plants.  ..."Knowing how to use medicinal plants and using locally available plants for medicine is an integral part of building self-sufficiency and resilience. Herbal medicine is part and parcel of a holistic, low-tech approach to sustainability." +++++

What Harvey Milk Can Teach Today's Green Activists

What Harvey Milk Can Teach Today's Green Activists | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
Milk, the movie, strangely leaves out the riot at city hall. During White’s trial, his lawyer argued that he was agitated and hopped up on sugary junk food at the time (a strategy that became known as the “Twinkie Defense”). The day that he was sentenced, he was given seven and a half years total for killing both men. (White ultimately served five years in prison.) That day, thousands of people marched to city hall, and when they arrived, began to tear it apart. By the end of the night, 61 police and 100 protesters would be in the hospital.

Urban Soil Safety

Urban Soil Safety | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

There are also potential health risks associated with growing food in urban settings. Urban soils may harbor contaminants such as lead, petroleum products, and asbestos. People may come into contact with these contaminants if they work or play in contaminated soil, or eat food that was grown in it. Gardeners may be unaware of these risks and how to manage them.

One very doable solution to cut down on the amount of wasted food!

...“We currently produce enough food, but the tragedy is that too much of it is lost unnecessarily through spoilage in developing countries, where it is most needed,  due to inadequate infrastructure and in particular a lack of cold and frozen supply chains."   *****
