Mushrooms, Micorrhizae, and garden trees

I can't quite say this is a how-to: I am trying to develop my processes.

I am getting ready to try to put in some trees, and I read that symbiotic (mycorrhyzae) mushrooms can really boost the growth and yield. Now, If I understand correctly, one common mycorhyzzal mushroom is the amanita. I really don't want to encourage amanitas. Someone sees a death-cap, and thinks it a straw mushroom, and that would be very bad.

Viability of CSA models in bad times

My wife and I are embarking on a small farming adventure.  We have several acres of fruit trees and garden space we are working on building into a small organic, permaculture based, market farm.  We are both working full time jobs that pay well and are slowly buying equipment and installing fencing and irrigation and starting a small food forest.

Buy Fresh, Buy GMO - MIT Technology Review January 2014

Hi everyone,

I just received an e-mail from the Sebastopol Grange letting me know about this cover on the current issue of MIT Technology Review. I feel sad and enraged at the deception this image cultivates coming from a highly respected technical institution.  It makes me even more grateful for all of the incredible resources we have here in West Sonoma County for healthy food
