Information sources for community food security

Hugh Joseph, Ph.D., who directs the New Entry Sustainable Farming Program at the Friedman School, has been circulating a nice collection of newsletters and other information sources about community food security and sustainable agriculture. In most of these web pages, there is a link to sign up for a newsletter or periodical.
The New Farm: Farmer-to-farmer Know-how from the Rodale Institute. Also a great website for organic, sustainable, and regenerative farming resources.

It is a useful listserve for those interested in sustainable ag. issues in the region, with announcments of resources, events, etc. and sometimes articles and discussions.Posting level is low-to-moderate - about 2-4 times a week at most.
