Noteworthy Green: Country Mice, Garden Porn, and More...

>> Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Check out my post this week on The Green Phone Booth: Country Mouse Goes Green

I spent the last week at my parent's house in Small Town, KY, population 8000. From a green perspective, my parents have the dual disadvantage of living in a small town and living in the South. (Southerners are near and dear to my heart, but let's face it, they are not the fastest bunch to jump on the green bandwagon.)

In my parent's town, there is nary a Whole Foods in sight. In fact, you'd have to drive 45 miles to find a wider organic selection than is stocked at the local Walmart. Read more...

And elsewhere on the Internet:

::In The New York Times, Elizabeth Royte of Garbageland fame spends some time with urban farmer extraordinaire, Will Allen.

::The Washington Post takes a closer look at organic certification and finds that it's not all it purports to be, and Organic Mania gives some suggestions for what you can do about it.

::The New York Times looks at one organization's efforts to boost recycling in low-income areas.

::Food Renegade reports on Wendell Berry's passionate opposition to the NAIS legisation. He's willing to go to jail over it!

::EnviRambo at The Green Phone Booth shows you how to get your squash to mate. Nothing like some good garden porn.

Great links!! Woohoo for Wendell Berry. We all need to take a page out of his book as well as out of the Street Farmers' book.
