Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The case for organic food
Los Angeles Times - 9/5/2012.
Editorial – Perhaps the most valuable thing about the study of available research undertaken by Stanford's Center for Health Policy is that it points up how little is yet known about the benefits of organics and the harms done by widespread pesticide use.

Should the citizens' initiative succeed at the ballot box, experts say the impact will be felt across the nation, including here in Maine.
