Organic Manifesto

How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe



Rodale was founded on the belief that organic gardening is the key to better health both for us and for the planet, and never has this message been more urgent. Now Maria Rodale, CEO and Chairman of Rodale Inc., sheds new light on the state of 21st-century farming. She examines the unholy alliances that have formed between the chemical companies that produce fertilizer and genetically altered seeds, the agricultural educational system that is virtually subsidized by those same companies, and the government agencies in thrall to powerful lobbyists, all of which perpetuate dangerous farming practices and deliberate misconceptions about organic farming and foods. Interviews with government officials, doctors, scientists, and farmers from coast to coast bolster her position that chemical-free farming may be the single most effective tool we have to protect our environment and, even more important, our health.

I think frequently monitor the leaves & fruit for signs of blight. If you find some, remove the 1z0-043 | 1z0-526 | HP0-D07 | HP0-P14 | 050-V70 | 1z0-451 | affected plant. You may be able to save the fruit by picking. The plant should be placed in a plastic bag & carefully disposed of to prevent the disease spreading to neighbouring gardens or farms ged math prep ged ged prep

Right on Mary! I am a mother of three children and I wholeheartedly agree with you. My goal in life is to learn to grow as much of our own food and medicines as possible (as well as being a good mother and human being).

Re,

This book is a "must read" for any gardener and I believe for any non-gardener also.It concerns not only our food but indeed, our future as a race on this planet.We all need to understand what this book is about. It is clear, well written and an excellent summary of the term "organic" and what it means to all of us. Ron Kushner cialis generique

pesticides

In coastal areas of the country like siesta key waterfront real estate where things grow well but downpours result in runoff, pesticides are a concern for contamination of the water supply. Organic growing eliminates that concern.

i am against organic foods

What was the founder so interested in organic foods? Do you think they are good for health when even you cannot rely on natural foods these days??

worst is organic!

I think organic gardening is one of the worst invention by any. Yes, you get something which is unique and productive but it costs your pocket as well as environment at huge pace

Healthy food

Healthy food and natural supplements are the key to our health. Some people don't like the idea of supplements, but hey, you don't get all the vitamins you need from the modern food. Natural supplements, made of natural ingredients, like garlic or green tea, are a real help. I write about it more (e.g. about allicin from garlic, flavanols from green tea, etc.) on my website PAGG Stack.

Hi, I know and appreciate your work. My family has a farm in Italy and I know that today we need a new agriculture. Unfortunately need more involvement of citizens and institutions to achieve significant results. We hope for the future. Sorry for my English but not very good:). We also recommend my blog.
