Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Did sewage sludge lace the White House veggie garden with lead?
Mother Jones - 6/17/2009.
By Josh Harkinson – In March, Michelle Obama delighted locavores when she planted an "organic" vegetable garden on the White House's South Lawn. For years, Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, and other sustainable food activists had been pushing the idea as a way to reseed interest in do-it-yourself agriculture. Less than two months later, the National Park Service disclosed that the garden's soil was contaminated with toxic lead, and the plot's educational value took on a new flavor as the New York Times and other papers discussed how to make urban backyards that are laced with old lead-based paint safe for growing kale and cauliflower. But those stories might have fingered the wrong culprit.
Time to save our nation’s dairy farmers
Grist - 6/16/2009.
By Elanor Starmer – Did you see that movie Flash of Genius? It follows the unlucky Robert Kearns, played by Greg Kinnear, as he spends his life (and his savings) perfecting the intermittent windshield wiper, only to have his idea snared and used without credit by the Ford Motor Company. He pursues lawsuits against Ford and other car companies out of principle, he says: It is simply not fair that all of his hard work enriches Detroit’s Big Three while leaving him and his family virtually penniless.
Suits dismissed against Boulder dairy
Organic Consumers - 6/15/2009.
By Sara Castellanos, The Denver Post – A federal judge last week dismissed lawsuits against Boulder- based Aurora Organic Dairy. The lawsuits, filed by consumers, alleged the company's milk did not meet organic requirements.
Dexter organizers create farmers market plan
Bangor Daily News - 6/15/2009.
By Diana Bowley – Dexter is circling around its farmers to ensure they survive so local residents can continue to get wholesome and fresh farm produce. Organizations from the local book club to the Dexter Regional Development Corp. have been working with local farmers behind the scenes for months on plans that would both support the farmers and improve the region’s economy.
