2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The real nitty-gritty on small farms and the food-safety bill
Grist - 12/3/2010.
By Bonnie Azab Powell, Tom Philpott – As recently as Monday, the Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510) seemed set to sail through the House and to the president's desk for rubber-stamping.
