There’s no doubt that food is high on everyone’s agenda but how often do you think about where your vegetables and fruits actually come from? Farming nowadays is all about commercial gains and getting the healthiest looking fruits to hit the markets when in reality they’re full of chemicals, preservatives, and hormones. Curious about what goes on behind the scenes in the farming industry, the Khaleejesque team got the chance to visit Yasmin Farms in Kuwait with their business development manager, Bader Al-Ayoubi, and got a briefing about the farm’s clean modern approach to farming. Established in 2005, it is one of the forerunners of ethical farming in Kuwait. Yasmin Farms: Modern Ethical Farming | Khaleejesque Yasmin Farms: Modern Ethical Farming | Khaleejesque

You could literally save a life by providing nutrition powerful enough to bring a child back from the brink of death. Child malnutrition rates today remain devastating and are made exponentially worse by rapidly rising food prices around the world. But while malnutrition continues to kill millions of children a year and stunt growth in untold numbers more, there is hope in the form of a recently created "super food" that provides the specific, high-quality nutrition children need to recover, survive, and even thrive. Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTFs) are credited with cutting in half the malnutrition rate in Sudan's troubled Darfur region, and have been in use for the past several years around the world by organizations like Project Peanut Butter, Doctors Without Borders, and Partners In Health. This peanut/ dairy/ vitamin/ mineral paste requires no preparation -- no mixing with clean water, which can be difficult to find -- and no special supervision, making it easy to use.

Architect Marks Barfield is to design a £13 million “eco” mosque on a 0.4 hectare brownfield site in Cambridge. England’s historic city of Cambridge, with its world-famous university and idyllic countryside, will soon count a mosque amidst its stunning skyline of spires. But this isn’t just any old mosque. In fact it is the first-purpose built mosque in the city which also happens to be environmentally-friendly! After years of dealing with overcrowding at various small sites across the city, the growing Muslim community decided that it was time to take action. By the summer of 2008, a strip of land and an old warehouse has been purchased and plans for the new mosque were underway.

Chickpea replaces peanut in new therapeutic food recipe QUETTA, 2 June 2011 (IRIN) - Ready-to-use therapeutic foods (RUTFs) have become an important weapon in fighting child malnutrition, since their early development in Malawi [ ], and subsequent endorsement by major NGOs and UN agencies. A new variant in production in Pakistan replaces a key ingredient, peanuts, with chick peas which saves money, stimulates the local economy and fits better with local tastes, according to the World Food Programme. Child malnutrition is a long-standing problem in Pakistan, and according to the World Bank [ ] the number of children who are underweight or stunted "is of particular concern since Pakistan has long been considered self-sufficient in diverse agriculture produce and refined foods".

Eben Bayer: Are mushrooms the new plastic?
Project Noah These lovely little birds are certainly frugivorous! I saw them for the first time ever right outside on March 24, 2014. They were in the fruit trees right outside of the school! However, I only had my phone camera so the photos weren’t the greatest. So every day this week I’ve had mom bring the camera in case they were back, and sure enough they were! There were so many cars in the pickup circle, by the time we got close enough for me to get out and get some photos, they had already flown away!
