productive landscapes, avocado edition

The season’s first avocado, rescued from a pile of excavated soil and rock. Friend of tin box and expert on the unconscionable labor practices of the deep South, Alex Lichtenstein, points us to an excellent commentary on local industrial-scale agriculture by Mark Bittman, who also has a good blog post on the environmental consequences of meat production that’s worth reading. Bittman links to a bunch of recent articles on the environmental and health problems generated by meat production and consumption, including a nice piece by the brilliant Ezra Klein.
