Grains and how we get them - July 12

Staff, Energy Bulletin

This post talks about a seldom-mentioned aspect of local sustainable food production: how do we get our carbs? Local and urban fruit and veg production is all very well and needs to be encouraged, but as East Anglia Food Link Coordinator Tully Wakeman says, "...fruit and veg supplies only about 10% of our calories". How and where our grains are grown, and how they can be sustainably transported and processed form the crux of this issue.

Homestead Aesthetics

Sharon Astyk, Casaubon's Book

I know a lot of people who read “shelter magazines” - which is just a fancy way of saying magazines full of pretty homes. I admit to liking to look at them in checkout lines myself, since they do help me beautify my house - just not the way they are supposed to. I think: ”Wow, that’s a gorgeous sleigh bed - I’d love that…hmmm…8,000 dollars….yeah, my futon’s looking cozier and more elegant already!”
