• Organic Farming in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

    One of the best solutions to the climate crisis has to be eating organic food. Not only does organic farming consume far less fossil fuels than conventional farming, but well-managed organic farms have even been shown to sequester carbon in their soil -- actually taking CO2 out of the atmosphere. To get organic food in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Krystal and Ana founded Organic Select... Changer notre manière de manger est l'une des solutions les plus efficaces pour éviter l'aggravation du changement climatique. Une première étape importante consiste à consommer plus de produits bio. Ana et Krsytal, fondatrices d'Organic Select, savaient que de la nourriture bio était essentielle pour leurs patients et leur propre bien-être. Qu'ont-elles fait? Elles ont lancé leur propre business!

  • Planting Trees to Help Protect Farming Communities in Mexico from a Changing Planet

    In the communities of Chiapas, Mexico, changes to our climate are causing longer dry seasons and shorter, more intense rainy seasons. This combination is causing pasture production to decline and more severe floods and landslides — as rainfall rushes across the dry landscape. To help fix the problem, The Nature Conservancy and partners are helping farmers plant carefully chosen trees in their pastures. The trees keep the grass from drying out as fast, and help ensure that more water can filter into the ground instead of rushing across dry earth. As a result, farmers are seeing better crop yields and are also helping make their communities more resilient to a changing climate.

Thousands of fireflies light up a magical spectacle at dusk in the mass of old-growth trees at the Piedra Canteada park, about 45 miles (75 kilometres) east of the city. For years, the vast forces of the world economy, low prices for farm products and logs, forced the farm community to cut down trees. It wasn't until 2011 that community members realised that the millions of fireflies that light up the forest between June and August could be the real draw. Visitors come from the nearby city where few have seen any significant number of fireflies. Since the sawmill opened, it has brought much needed jobs to locals that...

    As the Mexican presidental election approaches, politicians make great electoral promises in order to win the farmers' vote. This is because rural communities in Mexico make up 30 per cent of the population and, although the federal budget for the rural sector has increased, more than 60 percent of extreme poverty is found in the countryside. In the Mexican town of Zacatecas, some say they have been forgotten by politicians in the past and they hope the politicians' electoral promises will be respected in the upcoming run for presidency.

    This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Reportt, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Organic farming avoids the use of chemical pesticides and manmade fertilizers. Supporters say organic farming is better for the environment than other methods. But studies have shown that organic farming often produces less food per hectare. That lower yield means feeding the world organically would require more land. But good farmland is limited. And scientists say deforestation from the clearing of land for agriculture is already a problem for climate change. In a new study, researchers wanted to measure the difference between conventional and organic yields. So they combined the results of sixty-six earlier studies. They found that some organ...

Thousands of fireflies light up a magical spectacle at dusk in the mass of old-growth trees at the Piedra Canteada park, about 45 miles (75 kilometres) east of the city. For years, the vast forces of the world economy, low prices for farm products and logs, forced the farm community to cut down trees.

Visitors come from the nearby city where few have seen any significant number of fireflies. Since the sawmill opened, it has brought much needed jobs to locals that would otherwise only have revenue for the short three-month period of firefly season. The sawmill allows them to continue to provide jobs for the community for the rest of the year while also using their own resources.

As the Mexican presidental election approaches, politicians make great electoral promises in order to win the farmers' vote. This is because rural communities in Mexico make up 30 per cent of the population and, although the federal budget for the rural sector has increased, more than 60 percent of extreme poverty is found in the countryside. In the Mexican town of Zacatecas, some say they have been forgotten by politicians in the past and they hope the politicians' electoral promises will be respected in the upcoming run for presidency. Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Zacatecas.

This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Reportt, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Organic farming avoids the use of chemical pesticides and manmade fertilizers. Supporters say organic farming is better for the environment than other methods. But studies have shown that organic farming often produces less food per hectare. That lower yield means feeding the world organically would require more land. But good farmland is limited. And scientists say deforestation from the clearing of land for agriculture is already a problem for climate change. In a new study, researchers wanted to measure the difference between conventional and organic yields. So they combined the results of sixty-six earlier studies. They found that some organic farms can yield almost as much as conventional farms. But most cannot. The findings were reported in the journal Nature. The study's lead author was Verena Seufert of McGill University in Canada. She says convention farms usually have higher yields than organic ones. But some activities, environmental conditions and even crops can narrow the differences. On average, organic farms produced twenty-five percent less compared to conventional farms. But yields of organic fruits and other perennial crops nearly equaled the yields from conventional ones. So did the yields of legumes such as soybeans. Legumes produce some of their own nitrogen fertilizer. However, organic vegetables and cereal crops had a lot lower yields compared to conventionally grown crops. Ms. Seufert says the soil on organic farms holds water better, and that can reduce the yield difference. Also, organic farmers can improve their yields by making sure crops get enough fertilizer. But increasing the nitrogen is harder to do organically, using just animal waste and crop rotations. Organic farmers rotate food crops with plants that fertilize the soil. But while these "cover," or fertilizer, crops are growing, food crops have to be grown on other land. And if farmers use manure, they have to feed the animals that produce it, and that requires grazing land or crop land. The United Nations says world demand for food will grow seventy percent by the middle of the century. John Reganold is a scientist at Washington State University. He says no one should dismiss organic agriculture as part of the solution. He says farming is increasingly a mix of organic and conventional methods.

In 2014 Fredrik left his life in Copenhagen to become an organic farmer at Yduns Have on the Danish island, Samsø. In September 2015 we visited Yduns Have to find out why Fredrik left his computer work in the Danish capital to become an organic farmer. Yduns Have (Ydun's Garden) is an organic farm where the collective of farmers experiment with how to manage a farm and how to create a successful agricultural business model. In 2015 Yduns Have launched their Community Supported Agriculture, where more than 30 families on Samsø pay for a whole year of products in the beginning of the year. In this way the families enable that Yduns Have is not dependent on banks and Yduns Have enables that the families are not dependent on supermarkets. Yduns Have also sells their products in their yard sale and to the Danish food logistic company Aarstiderne.

Mexico City, Mexico (NTN24) Thousands come to Mexico City's Chapultepec Park to exchange their recyclable goods for organic food products as part of a drive to promote recycling in the city. Thousands of Mexicans gathered in Mexico City's Chapultepec Park on Sunday (April 1) to trade in recyclable goods for agricultural products and plants as part of the city's first such official exchange. The estimated crowd of more than 3,000 participants were able to exchange goods such as glass, paper and aluminium for "green points" which can then be used to purchase agricultural items such as lettuce, cactus, spinach, tomatoes, and flowers, among other things. Lillian Haugen, one of the event's organizers, said the event aimed to promote recycling awareness and place a value on items considered trash. "The objective is to educate and inform people, so that they know and recognize that recyclable goods that are set aside properly to begin to accumulate, and if they are separated correctly, they have value. Mexico City has very big problems with trash accumulation. This program was created to stimulate and give them (residents) incentives, so they can learn to recycle," she said. "Here people can bring their solid recyclables, and exchange them for 'green points'. This helps encourage people to think of the exchange as tangible. They then can go to market section, and exchange their green points for agricultural products," she added. All the plant products were grown by small-time local growers in the Mexico City metropolitan area. The event organizers also aimed to promote these small agricultural businesses. People were asked to bring a minimum of one kilo (2.2 lbs) of recyclable goods, but no more than 10 kilos (22 lbs) to allow the agricultural products to benefit the largest possible number of people. Mexico City launched a campaign several years ago to teach households to separate organic waste from recyclables. Sorting centres were built to replace informal workers who rake through trash for scraps of metal, plastic and paper. Despite that, the level of recycled garbage remains low compared to many Western countries.
