Sites

Blog, web, and brick-and-mortar, relating to agriculture and/or urban agriculture. Check back for new articles, issues, debates, advocacies and the occasional standout piece of essay-writing on urban ag/food.

Ecological Farming Association: very useful for their “jobs list.” You can sign up to receive emails about positions–paid, internship, and apprenticeship–on sustainable/organic/biodynamic farms all over the country. Good for a reality check of the skill sets needed, the wages paid, and the locations offered: http://www.eco-farm.org/resources/efa_email_lists/

FoodCorps: just getting into California, they are a new org modeled on the Peace Corps, but domestic, and employing youth: https://foodcorps.org/become-a-service-member

Food Safety News: some crisis-driven reporting (e.g. on recalls), but also some broader question-driven pieces, such as this one on “how pathogens get into food.” Useful for us because they treat “fresh” ag produce as well as processed food. http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2013/01/how-do-pathogens-get-into-produce/

National Sustainable Agricultural Coalition: http://sustainableagriculture.net/blog/pcast-report_ucs/
