The Great First we can look for places in the world where it is already happening and at times in Irish Famine of the 1840s was caused partly by history where it has happened before. On a small scale it is found on organic farms. On a potato blight, but also by the fact that many people larger scale can we look at countries such as Bhutan and Kerala, and Cuba, which have only had access to enough land to grow one crop, and many of the elements of sustainable society. It is hard to find historical examples of it was potatoes. The potato is still the best crop to countries that carried out sustainable agriculture, as the history books are largely written produce calories per acre, that we have, and it is time by, and about, the countries that took them over. What we do know about them is that to start planting. they have diverse crops and farmers that feel well rewarded for their work.Potatoes are unfussy plants but will reward you well for a little care and attention.

I have been growing quinoa for several years now and I think it could be a really useful crop here. Like the potato it can be grown on a garden scale and in fact it might only be successful on this scale as the seeds have a tendency to sprout in the heads if the weather gets damp when the seeds are mature. This means that the crop is spoiled if not harvested quickly. If it is a garden bed you can rush out and cut it with a sickle or a secateurs and put it in the porch to dry, however if it is grown on a field scale it might not be possible to get large equipment into a field in time. Other  crops worthy of research are oca, yacon, and amaranth. Cereals can also be grown on a small scale but can be tricky to process. The most successful alternative staple crop I have found to grow is the pea, followed closely by the broad bean. A young farmer who sells vegetables in the Farmers Market, called in yesterday to buy some seeds. He only wants to grow crops that will be out of the ground in September as he is preparing to emigrate. He cannot make a living growing vegetables here, and is going to try his luck on a different continent. It will be hard to create a sustainable society of any kind here, if any more young people leave West Cork.

  13. 13. Petition To Stop ACTA The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA, was signed by the European Union and 22 of its member states recently.  And it could ruin the internet as we know it. To Stop ACTA Today CLICK HERE! Eight countries, including the United States, signed this last fall. Called "SOPA light", it is a global treaty that authorizes the policing of the inter net and its users, and ultimately, the censorship of it.This would hurt the freedom of expression, civil and digital rights, fair use rights, and theright to privacy.Strict penalties, including prison sentences, would be enforced for violations of ACTA.Please sign the petition and tell ACTA supporters to keep the internet free foreveryone! Thanks for taking action! 13
