There is No Box: Big Ideas About Urban Agriculture and Local Food Systems 12.5.2009 Commondreams.org Views
by Rose Hayden-Smith

I've been pondering a lot the last three weeks, trying to think outside the box, and trying to proceed as if there is no box at all. Two weeks of conferences in a row, one the Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Conference, the second sponsored by the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources. Very different conferences, but a common theme: Food Systems All the Time.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Institute for Agriculture & Trade Policy (IATP)

Parishioners at Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Minnesota do more than donate food to a local food shelf—they actually grow it themselves. The project is one of many case studies highlighted in a new report by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) and funded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (Blue Cross) that demonstrate a growing nationwide movement within the faith community to put into practice the belief that healthy foods will help feed the body and soul.

Hungry and Without Options in New York 27.4.2009 Mother Jones
Introduction by Tom Engelhardt In recent weeks, President Obama has gotten great press for winning speeches and handshakes globally, as well as for setting a new tone for American policy abroad, while administration figures, including and the President himself, have begun talking up on the economic horizon.
