Who Owns Organic? Surprise!

Green Earth Journey

Do you purchase packaged or processed organic foods? I avoid organic versions of things from mega-corporations like Del Monte and Kellogg's because I really don't support the monolithic philosophy. But, who owns my organic packaged food? These products say "made with organic soy" but do not say 100% organic, so it is likely that they use GMO soy also. White Wave and Horizon Organic are owned by Dean Foods.

Pros and Cons of Organic Farming


Even though organic farming has been around since the Neolithic period, when our ancestors turned from hunters and gatherers to farmers, there is no doubt that it is experiencing a bit of a comeback in recent years. With ever-increasing awareness about toxic chemicals used extensively in modern agriculture, more people are willing to pay higher prices for organically produced food. The global market for organic products has grown to 80 billion US dollars in 2015, with the U.S.

Yes, Organic Farming Can Feed the World

Green (Living) Review

If my experience last month in Turkey is any indication, the notion that GMOs are the only way to feed a growing population is way out of step with both the leading thinkers on food and farming and the world’s smallholder farmers—who produce much of what the planet eats and 80 percent of the food in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. These farmers may not have money on their side, but I saw the power of strength in numbers at the Organic World Congress. green living organic farming
