My Dream Food Co-op

Sounding Board
By Your Board July 16, 2013

One of the really cool parts of my day job at Feeding America is that I get to travel around the country to join, start, simplify, complicate, explicate, and otherwise advance some of the big conversations surrounding food, food access, hunger, and food systems.

Saving Seeds = Saving Our Planet

Sounding Board
By Your Board March 5, 2013

An e-mail recently appeared in my inbox that really got me thinking about the sustainability of current conventional farming practices. The e-mail contained a link to a report by the Center for Food Safety as part of its Save Our Seeds (SOS) initiative (http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/campaign/save-our-seeds/). The report, Seed Giants vs. U.S. Farmers, highlights the ongoing practice of seed companies suing farmers for patent infringement when their fields are discovered to contain genetically engineered (GE or trangenic) crops, even though the farmers hadn't purchased GE seeds from the companies. The seed companies allege that farmers are knowingly saving seeds from prior year GE crops, or are obtaining GE seeds from “seed cleaners,” who specialize in the practice of processing seeds from prior years to use for subsequent plantings. According to the seed companies, these practices are expressly prohibited by the technology agreements signed by farmers who use GE seeds.

Week 25 - Tomatillos; The Gift That Keeps On Giving

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert October 11, 2010
That’s my story for week 25 – unexpected tomatillos. We believed the small batch of salsa in week 18 would be our only batch, since somewhere around week 20 or 21, said tomatillo plant was “gleaned” by other friends.

Week 18 - Tomatillos and Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert August 24, 2010
I’ve estimated that recently, on average, I’m spending about 8-10 more hours each week on food prep (and this project) than when I was eating conveniently.

Week 17 - Take Your Pick Of Tomatohhs

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert August 18, 2010
What better time to pick to stand over a boiling pot of water and skin those little “apples of paradise” as my German Grandmother would have called them.
