Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bill Seeks to End Antibiotic Use to Spur Animal Growth
The New York Times - 7/13/2009.
By Gardiner Harris – Washington: The Obama administration announced Monday that it would seek to ban many routine uses of antibiotics in farm animals in hopes of reducing the spread of dangerous bacteria in humans.
Is there Bisphenol A in your home canning?
Treehugger - 7/13/2009.
By Lloyd Alter – We recently reported that the endocrine disruptor Bisphenol A (BPA) was found in organic baby food packed in glass jars, apparently from the lining of the metal lid.

Bright blue and green plastic buckets held chard, beets and beet greens, lettuces and other garden greens. Along with onions and lettuces, he planted potatoes, beans and other vegetables. A wooden basket of peas in pods – his first of the season – sat near a scale.

A federal program subsidizes those meals for children whose families live in poverty, or very close to the poverty line. It's one of the most effective federal programs at fighting hunger. But what happens when school lets out?
