Real Food Campaign is collecting articles of every sort about nutrient-dense farming and food.
An extensive body of literature already exists describing Biological Agriculture and the methods of nutrient-dense production, but much of it is scattered in a wide assortment of books, journals, magazines, and many obscure sources. These valuable resources can support public education, grower training, scientific research, and developing Standards.
Real Food Campaign will assemble and organize as much of this information as possible to offer on this website, by direct weblink, or by reference.
General articles in popular press are separate from more technical papers in scientific journals and similar research publications. Technical articles are listed in Reports webpages.
We will offer five indexes to view and access this library:
title, author, subject, publication, crop
Currently, only the title and author index is operating.
For articles posted on-line, click the title to open the article in this window.
Articles in .pdf format are convenient to print and distribute; links in upper right corner, plus page count.
At the outset, simple listings are used. Later, excel spreadsheets will be a gateway to full-scale database.
Before next year, this will be a searchable database with the latest on-line technology and software.
Along with literature, we will have listings of nutrient-dense growers, retailers, distributors, processors, farm consultants, and other key production and marketing partners of a nutrient-dense food system.
You are invited to participate in this information gathering and sharing. Send us your own selections of articles about nutrient-dense production and food issues snipped from print and web. We will add them to this Library to keep us abreast of the latest developments--and the historic roots of our 21st Centiury initiative.
