"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
When the uprooted put down roots
The New York Times - 10/9/2011.
By Patricia Leigh Brown – SAN DIEGO — At the Saturday farmer’s market in City Heights, a major portal for refugees, Khadija Musame, a Somali, arranges her freshly picked pumpkin leaves and lablab beans amid a United Nations of produce, including water spinach grown by a Cambodian refugee and amaranth, a grain harvested by Sarah Salie, who fled rebels in Liberia. Eaten with a touch of lemon by Africans, and coveted by Southeast Asians for soups, this crop is always a sell-out.
Heirloom Garden’s unusual bulbs worth the wait
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/9/2011.
By Tom Atwell – Diana George Chapin – who with her mother, Sandy George, runs the Heirloom Garden of Maine in Montville – loves fritillaria. Her particular favorite is Fritillaria meleagris, also called the checkered lily, which has small, checkered, bell-shaped flowers in maroon-purple and white.
Cooperative economy can be key to Maine’s future
Kennebec Journal - 10/9/2011.

Alternet - 10/7/2011.
By Ari LeVaux – An estimated 60 to 70 percent of processed foods contains genetically modified organisms, but unlike 50 other countries, the US doesn't require labeling. For years, polls have shown that about 90 percent of Americans support the labeling of foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). That's about as close to a consensus as you're going to get in this country.
