Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
What’s cooking?
Portland Press Herald - 1/6/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Portland: The new year is bringing lots of changes to the Portland food and restaurant scene. New restaurants, believe it or not, are still opening here, cementing the city's reputation as "the foodiest small town in America." Established restaurants are transforming themselves with extensive renovations and menu changes. And there are more food choices than ever.
Get tough on toxic chemicals
Bangor Daily News - 1/6/2010.
Guest Column by Jody Spear – Two state agencies, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, earned our respect last year by designating 1,700 toxic substances as chemicals of high concern. Several environmental-health scientists whose research has identified such chemicals are the subject of two recent books: “The Body Toxic” by Nena Baker and “Poisoned Profits: The Toxic Assault on Our Children” by Philip and Alice Shabecoff. We owe a tremendous debt to both the researchers and the journalists who are making the facts accessible to a wide popular audience.
New report calls for atrazine review
Grist - 1/6/2010.
By Erik Hoffner – An important new report on atrazine was published yesterday and it’s about time. Pesticide Action Network and Land Stewardship Project have brought together the science and farming communities to make a strong statement about the need for a new review of the herbicide atrazine and to outline alternatives for its use.
It takes a community to sustain a small farm
Grist - 1/5/2010.
By Steph Larsen – These days it seems the most popular person to be in the food system is the “local farmer.” Farmers markets are popping up everywhere, and their size and popularity grow all the time. Local food is trendy – even the First Family is in on it. But as anyone who has ever raised grain or livestock can tell you, the farmer is not the only person in the chain of players from her farm to your fork.
