“The research is showing increasingly that organic farming has some of the greatest potential to store carbon. The whole system of organic farming and other sustainable practices that come out of the organic toolbox, they all really focus on soil building.” -Renata Brillinger
We just came across this article (or rather: audio file/interview) on how agriculture can affect climate change: “keeping carbon in the soil rather than letting it escape into the atmosphere makes for healthier crops and combats global warming.”
Supporting organic agriculture would be a very awesome thing to do for our planet’s climate, if there is anything to the mentioned research. What better way to do just that, than to be a member of a CSA? We’re not being rhetorical here–eat well AND feel good about yourself while reducing your carbon footprint–join CSA Newark this season!
