Improving Food Worker Livelihoods: An Interview with UFWA’s Erik Nicholson 2.8.2010 worldwatch.org
Can you please contextualize the work you do, in what has become a global system of agriculture? We are now importing the majority of the food we eat. The overwhelming majority of workers who harvest the food we eat in the United States are not from this country. And many if not most of the workers employed in the fields in the United States are displaced farmers from their own countries (mostly Mexico but not exclusively). So we're seeing that many of the same pressures and challenges that are facing farmers in the U.S. are the very same ones that are displacing small farmers in the global South and resulting in them coming in search of employment to the United States, Canada, Australia, and European Union. At the same time, farmers and ...

Will All the Wild Fish Be Gone by 2048? 29.7.2010 GOOD
Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish , talks about including fish in discussions of sustainable food. Fish are not like bison or farm-raised cattle. They're out of sight—in floating net pens, spawning on coastal shelves, or swimming through unregulated offshore waters. So when you hear about collapsing tuna stocks, underwater feedlots, or certified sustainable salmon, it’s hard to appreciate what’s actually going on with the world’s fisheries because because fish are found in unseeable reaches of the world. In his book Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food , the journalist Paul Greenberg combs the ocean to examine the fish that most frequently end up on our dinner table: salmon, bass, cod, and tuna. He ...

What Does "Organic" Really Mean? 28.7.2010 GOOD
When you're trolling the aisles at the grocery store and you slip from the cereal aisle to the shampoo section, do the definitions change? If it says "organic" on both a bottle of sunscreen and a box of crackers, what does that even mean? We’ve asked Joe Dickson, who works with the USDA’s National Organic Standards Board and at Whole Foods Market, which recently announced strict new organic guidelines for its body care section , to set the record straight. GOOD: What does organic really mean?  Joe Dickson: In a general sense, organic foods are grown in earth-friendly ways without the use of toxic or persistant agricultural chemicals.  Thanks to the clear federal definition of "organic," organic food ...
