Citrus season is here!


You know the citrus season has arrived when Buddha’s Hand fruits start showing up in the California markets. We’re going to shave some of this one onto a salad tonight, and probably make some Citron (it’s other well-known moniker) syrup as well. Here’s a link to the infamous University of California Riverside citrus collection, which has more information on this bizzare-looking fruit: Buddha’s Hand Citron.

Sustainable news of note:

Beautiful photo essay on the Washington Post website about a new breed of young farmers that are abandoning high-paying corporate jobs to work in the fields for less than minimum wage. ON THE FARM: The move towards sustainable agriculture has some young adults deciding to send a season – or a lifetime – in the fields.

MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan talks with Chef Marcus Samuelsson and Grist’s Tom Laskawy about Michelle Obama’s food policy. The take away? She’s not going to focus on a battle betwwen organic vs. conventional, or local vs. imported foods, it’s going to be about access to good food, especially in communities where there are no farmers markets or sources of fresh produce. Everyone needs to eat their veggies.

World Watch has just released a new report that shockingly claims the environmental impact of livestock raised for food has been vastly underestimated, and in fact accounts for at least half of all human-caused greenhouse gases (GHGs). Authors of the report Robert Goodland and Jeff Anhang found that finds animals raised for food and their byproducts actually account for at least 32.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year, or 51 percent of annual worldwide GHG emissions. You can download the report here.

Related: Lou Dobbs picks up on the Meatless Monday theme, particularly the Baltimore city school district’s effort to lower costs and get children to eat healthier meals. Naturally, the American Meat Institute cries fowl, and claims that students are being denied a choice in the matter. Lou Dobbs describes Meatless Monday in schools as political storm in the making.
