There’s always something going on here. In fact, maybe too much. Here are a few things happening in the world of farming:
- The state of Kerala, in India, has made it a new policy to go completely organic within the next 5 years. This is in response to the estimated 200,000 suicides among farmers since 1997. (See my earlier post on this.)
- We now have a new Slow Food group in my neighborhood, Port Susan Slow Food. I think I’ll have to join.
- The Harvest Jubilee was a gas! There were lots of people, lots of farms, and the cutest thing I’ve ever seen – a miniature donkey foal. Seriously, the “awww” factor was rediculous. Pictures are forthcoming.
