2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Chemicals in Farm Runoff Rattle States on the Mississippi
The New York Times - 6/3/2011.
By Leslie Kaufman – As the surging waters of the Mississippi pass downstream, they leave behind flooded towns and inundated lives and carry forward a brew of farm chemicals and waste that this year – given record flooding – is expected to result in the largest dead zone ever in the Gulf of Mexico.
Gardening as politics: digging the founding fathers
Bangor Daily News - 6/3/2011.
Op-ed by By Andrea Wulf, The Los Angeles Times – As America’s gardeners dig, plant, weed and grow lettuce, beans and tomatoes in their vegetable plots this summer, they are part of a tradition that harks back to the beginnings of the United States. Just by working on a compost pile this weekend, you’ll be in good historical company. The first four presidents of the United States – George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison – were all utterly obsessed with manure and recipes for compost.
How fish use energy teaches true oil economics
The Tyee (British Columbia) - 6/3/2011.
By Andrew Nikiforuk – Charlie Hall, the outspoken ecologist who charges that neoclassical economists largely write fairy tales, is thinking about how surplus energy makes the world go around and why the U.S. economy is faltering. Hall champions a revolutionary idea known as energy return on energy invested (EROI).
Best Friends Forever? Produce Growers and Pesticide Makers Deepen their Bond
Environmental Working Group - 6/2/2011.
By Ken Cook, Sara Sciammacco and Chris Campbell – In nearly two decades of research and advocacy on pesticides and human health, Environmental Working Group has never before seen the produce industry take a high-profile role in debates over pesticide policy and safety, as it has this year. Invariably, it was the trade association for the pesticide industry that took the lead.
