06 Organic garden

first_imgVolume XXIXNumber 1Page 6 By George BoyhanUniversity of GeorgiaYou may have heard of organic gardening or that a vegetable hasbeen grown organically. What exactly does this mean?Organic production relies on naturally occurring materials andprocesses to produce a crop. Neither pesticides nor manufacturedfertilizers are used.Organic gardeners often refer to “feeding the soil, not theplant,” when discussing organic gardening. And this is the mainidea in this type of garden. Build a healthy, biologicallyactive, nutrient-rich soil, and plants will thrive.The most important part of organic gardening is increasing theorganic content of the soil. Compost is the most common materialused to do this.Compost is the product of formerly living tissue that hasundergone aerobic (requiring air) decomposition. You can buycompost by the bag or the truckload, or you can make it yourself.Buy it?Your local garden center will have bagged compost, but this mightget expensive for a vegetable garden. Truckload amounts may be abetter choice at a modest price.Making your own compost involves collecting kitchen scraps, yardwaste and similar items and building a compost pile. If it’s doneright, this material will break down fast into compost. To learnmore about composting, contact your county University of GeorgiaExtension Service agent.Ideally, in organic gardening, your garden soil should have atleast 5 percent organic matter. Plant nutrients are supplied fromthe compost.Other ‘food’You can supplement them with other natural, organic materialsthat may have higher amounts of plant nutrients. These includethings like blood meal, poultry litter and fish emulsion.Other methods important to organic gardening include croprotation, in which crops that add fertility to the soil, such asbeans and peas, are followed by crops that require high amountsof fertility, such as corn and cabbage.Another important method is green manuring. This is the processof growing a crop solely for the purpose of turning it under toadd organic matter to the soil.Organic gardening may be more challenging in the short run. Butin the long run, it can be very rewarding and good for theenvironment.

Religious Leaders Support Gang Truce in El Salvador

first_img Anglican and Lutheran leaders and other religious groups supported the truce between Salvadoran gangs on November 17, which has contributed to diminishing murder rates in the country, from a daily average to less than half than before, a journalist reported to AFP. “It is time to join in support of this truce, the benefits of which concern us, and we must all contribute to seeking a lasting peace without violence,” said the Salvadoran Anglican bishop, Martín Barahona. Religious leaders, together with Military priest Fabio Colindres, one of the mediators in the gang truce, participated in a ceremony that took place in a San Salvador square on November 17, where they committed to supporting initiatives that will achieve “social peace,” from the gang truce, Lutheran Bishop Medardo Gómez explained. During a brief speech between attendees, among which there were gang members with their families, the Military priest assured that “2,300 people have been saved” from death since the truce started. On March 9, under the mediation of former guerrilla commander Raún Mijango and Colindres, the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and Barrio 18 gangs agreed on a truce to cease hostilities, which placed the country among the most violent in the world. After the agreement, homicides in El Salvador dropped from a daily average of 14 to 5.5, according to government figures. On October 3, another five minor Salvadoran gangs announced their alignment to the process. Ten thousand gang members are held in Salvadoran prisons, while another 50,000 run free in neighborhoods and streets, according to official data. By Dialogo November 23, 2012last_img read more
