Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Chemicals Leach From Packaging
Chemical & Engineering News - 8/31/2009.
Plastic, rubber, cardboard, metal, and glass packaging act as a barrier against all sorts of contamination, but they are also a source of contamination. Speak with anyone who produces, studies, or regulates packaging, and you will hear this point repeated: It is not a question of whether packaging components will leach into a product, it’s a question of how much.
Top USDA official gets serious about local/regional food systems
Grist - 8/28/2009.
By Tom Philpott – With the climate bill gutted by Big Ag and stalled in the Senate, with health-care reform on the verge of collapse, prospects for real change in national politics are looking grim. Well, here’s some hope from what’s traditionally one of the executive branch’s most retrograde agencies: the USDA.

Kennebec Journal - 8/28/2009.
Op-Ed by Denis Thoet – The Northeast United State – of which Maine is still part of – may have experienced its first widespread terrorist attack since Sept. 11, 2001.

Bangor Daily News - 8/28/2009.
By Meg Adams – I expected that my time spent assisting Sue, a nurse practitioner serving migrant camps in rural Maryland, would be an eye-opening experience. I expected to see men and women who lived in poor conditions. I expected to see laborers with unmet medical needs. But I did not expect to get so attached to our patients — or for one of our patients to be shot and killed before the week was through.
