"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers advance in their suit against Monsanto
Grist - 2/10/2012.
By Jenny An – Monsanto is getting a taste of its own medicine; the company is being taken to court. In this corner, we have a corporate biotech giant with a tighter grasp on the agricultural Monopoly board than your over-enthusiastic little sister on game night.
How a village became a hub for resilience and rock and roll
Treehugger - 2/10/2012.
By Sami Grover – Down the road from me, in the tiny former mill town of Saxapahaw, North Carolina, is a gas station that is working hard on becoming more sustainable. And that's just one of the exciting, green and innovative things going on in this rural community that is working toward resilience in its truest sense.
The frog of war
Mother Jones - 2/10/2012.
By Dashka Slater – Darnell lives deep in the basement of a life sciences building at the University of California-Berkeley, in a plastic tub on a row of stainless steel shelves. He is an African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis, sometimes called the lab rat of amphibians. Like most of his species, he's hardy and long-lived, an adept swimmer, a poor crawler, and a voracious eater. He's a good breeder, too, having produced both children and grandchildren. There is, however, one unusual thing about Darnell. He's female.
Building the local food infrastructure
Energy Bulletin - 2/10/2012.
By Olga Bonfiglio – Connecting food to the local economy can provide more people with greater access to local foods. Making it happen is another story since the necessary infrastructure was gradually dismantled over the past 70 years in favor of a national/global food system that promises low prices, year-round accessibility of products and convenience.
