    Is Organic Agriculture Doomed?

    in Environment

    With the approval of GMO Alfalfa, GMO Sugar Beets and GMO Corn, organic farmers are fighting harder than ever to protect their land and crops. Meanwhile, the agro-chemical companies are pleased that their profits are soaring. It is assumed that organic is in peril. Why is this devastating to organic farmers? One main reason is cross-fertilization. This is especially disastrous for organic farmers because once an organic field is contaminated, the organic farmer’s certification is at risk. The organic label prohibits the use of GMO crops. Losing organic certification would mean the farmer’s goods can no longer be sold for the premium price that helps cover the costs of growing organically. According to Farmaid.org, most genetically engineered crops hitting the market are developed by multinational companies such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Dupont and Dow Chemical to increase their sales and push their related pesticides. For example, Roundup Ready crops are engineered to withstand Monsanto’s toxic herbicide Roundup. With Roundup Ready alfalfa and sugar beets on the market, Monsanto can expect increased profits from its new seeds, as well as increased sales of Roundup herbicide to douse all those new seeds. This has also been a core issue for the beekeeping community which has expressed concern that the combination of GMO crops with the companion technology of neonicotinoids is devastating the rapidly declining bee population. It appears that the fate of organic farmers in the USA seems doomed but is it?

    Learn Why GMO's and Organic Will Never Co-Exist

    in Food

    Recently, USFDA approved a new animal drug application concerning AquAdvantage Salmon, a genetically engineered Atlantic salmon. More GE technology is expected to be approved in 2016. While the efforts in the United States for transparency have been great but is gmo labeling the way to go? Will this impact a consumer’s choice as far as paying a premium over the cheapest price for a product because of what is on the label? There is a movement in the United States to “just ban it”! In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Barbara Peterson, about why we should ban genetically modified crops. Stay tuned!

    HIVE - MIND; a memoir ~ organic farming, sustenance and survival.

    in Spirituality

    HIVE - MIND, a memoir by Gabrielle Myers


    Hive-Mind recounts Gabrielle's experiences on a small organic farm in California's Sacramento Valley during the growing season of 2006, as she apprenticed with a female farmer who took her life as the season drew to a close. The memoir begins with Gabrielle's first day on the farm, right after she left her job at an internationally known farm-to-table restaurant, with the intention of taking a long break between cooking full-time and starting graduate school.


    Hive-Mind asks what reasons we give ourselves for our sustenance, while considering how this care of the self and our community can be maintained regardless of life’s challenges and simultaneously compromised through alcohol and drug addiction, romantic loss, and a loved one’s death. Farmer’s decision to take her life after a failed romance runs counter to my embrace of life after a brief affair that didn’t work out as she had hoped. The farm’s acres reflect the divergent answers they each came up with in reply to what they both felt as tragic loss.


    Gabrielle is an Associate Professor of English, writer, and chef living in the Sacramento Valley of California. For over a decade, she worked as a cook and chef for San Francisco Bay area restaurants and catering companies. During the growing season of 2006, she apprenticed under Laura Trent, farmer and owner of Tip Top Produce, an organic farm that specialized in supplying Bay Area farmers’ markets and fine-dining restaurants with heirloom vegetables. Gabrielle, an Associate Professor of English at San Joaquin Delta College, went to graduate school in her early thirties to earn an M.A. in English from the University of California at Davis and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Saint Mary’s College of California.

    Let Go, Let Flow

    in Relationships

    Let it go! No, we're not talking about that song from 'Frozen' that everyone just loves.. we're talking about letting go of your desired outcome to get what you truly want. When is he going to call? Is he thinking of me? I have to do something now, or else he'll move on. Is he ever going to commit to me? Is he seeing someone new? If you've ever asked yourself these questions or ones like them, it's a sure-fire sign that you're attached to your outcome. In order to get the love that you so want and deserve, you need to be detached from your outcome completely. In other words, you need to trust the universe to bring you your desired outcome at the right now, and put your focus solely on YOU in the meantime. Seem impossible? Nah! 


    Join  Lucia and Nicee as we explore the concept of release, and why it's so important for your relationship. Let go of your outcome, and let your blessings flow!  The episode airs Monday April 18, at 9:00 PM EST.

    Does Your Pet Go To Heaven?

    in Spirituality

    Do you ever wonder if your pets go to heaven? Well many people do and there's been an increased interest from pet owners pertaining to animal spirits, and questions about their own pet’s spirituality lately.


    Animal Spirits are in full force right now and their energy is radiating from the other side like something I've never seen before. Along with this heightening of animal energy there has been a sudden surge in interest from pet owners about their pets own spirituality. They are asking a lot of questions about things such as:


    ·      When they cross over are they met by anyone?


    ·      Do animals have spirit guides?


    ·      Do they have angels?


    ·      Do animals reincarnate?


    ·      Can animals reincarnate as humans?


    So I’ve decided to do a radio show answering many of these questions as discussing spirit communication with animals. If you any questions regarding animal spirituality and your pets, this is will be a fascinating show!
