Sustainable agriculture and the fight against it

This article is interesting: What’s So Scary about Michael Pollan?

Also, our weekly alternative paper is starting a series about local farms and sustainable city life. Apparently this area has more than many other regions.

The Downtown/Midtown weekday seasonal farmers’ market (including the one I visit on Tuesday mornings) ended this week with a whimper, perhaps because it had been so windy the night before and keeping their canopies up was a challenge. But I got some good stuff, including corn, from the last few. One man gave me lots of extra pears and said, “See you in the spring.” The year-round markets are a few miles away, in shopping center parking lots. There is a very large market under the freeway not far from Midtown, but it’s on Sunday mornings. I’ll try to shop quickly some day before church.
