Interesting writing from Beverly Bell

Here is a very clear, farmer-angle view of a few of the problems inherent in our modern food system.  It is matter-of-fact, agronomically sound, and lacking in the heavy-handed ideology and dogma that often creep into debates on sustainable food.

This excerpt is from a book by journalist Beverly Bell called Harvesting Justice.  I haven't read it yet, but I plan to.  If you want an idea of what the book's about, and a brief, concise description of the concept of food sovereignty, read this blog.

Another book she's linked to on her website is about striving for a zero-waste regimen, which is to say eliminating landfills and incineration for garbage by reducing and recycling the waste generated by our modern lifestyle.  Again, I haven't read it, but it's on my queue.
