Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic agriculture beats biotech at its own game
Huffington Post - 8/18/2009.
By Timothy LaSalle – Organic agriculture's recently recognized benefits for improving food security don't depend on a boost from genetically modified (GM) technology.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our schools, where our kids are not taught about food and cooking, not even the “Home Economics” of my high school years.
