Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Mother Nature’s employee of the month
Bangor Daily News - 4/27/2010.
A bee pollinates the blossom of a Sargent cherry tree in the Lyle E. Littlefield Ornamentals Trial Garden on the University of Maine campus Saturday in Orono. The 7-acre facility is home to more than 2,500 plants and is open to the public from sunrise to sunset 365 days a year.
Organic, small farmers fret over FDA regulation
San Francisco Chronicle - 4/27/2010.
By Carolyn Lochhead – Washington: Small farmers in California who have led a national movement away from industrial agriculture face a looming crackdown on food safety that they say is geared to big corporate farms and will make it harder for them to survive.
Monsanto’s GM crops go to US high court
Common Dreams - 4/26/2010.
By Matthew Berger – Washington: The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in its first-ever case involving genetically modified crops. The decision in this case may have a significant impact on both the future of genetically modified foods and government oversight of that and other environmental issues.
Farmer gives homeless chance to work
Kennebec Journal - 4/26/2010.
By Erin Rhoda – Madison: Gary Davis stood in the middle of a corral at Albertson's Quarter Horse Farm, the long reins in his hands connected to the horse's halter. The horse responded to his voice commands to walk or trot or stop. When Davis finished learning for the first time how to "ground drive" and stepped out of the gate, he was smiling. No one would know that Davis, 24, is currently homeless – that as a Marine he completed two tours in Iraq and now can't find a job.
