EPA Faces Lawsuits Over Pesticide Harms, Soot
Environmental News Service - 2/2/2010.
The nonprofit Center for Biological Diversity has put the U.S. EPA on notice that it intends to sue the agency for failing to adequately evaluate and regulate nearly 400 pesticides harmful to hundreds of endangered species across the country as well as human beings.
Hundreds of farmers attend Belfast convention
Bangor Daily News - 2/1/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Belfast, Maine: Hundreds of farmers gathered at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center this weekend for the second annual Farmers Market Convention, sharing ideas, marketing strategies and solutions. Judy Blaisdell of the Maine Department of Agriculture said, “This has been a fabulous forum, and something the farmers markets have desperately needed. It’s a great opportunity for the vendors and market masters.” The convention, which was held Friday and Saturday, was sponsored by the Down East Business Alliance, and attendance this year doubled over last year’s.

Organic Consumers - 2/1/2010.
By Fred Kirschenmann, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture – By now it is obvious to almost everyone that food politics has captured center stage. Invite best-selling author Michael Pollan to a university campus and it stirs enormous controversy. A student writes a column in the school newspaper about the influence a corporate donor has on her university's educational environment and it causes heartburn for the administration. A neighbor complains about an unintended consequence of a particular agricultural practice and it becomes a source of conflict in the community.
