Fair information

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A merger in name only
Bangor Daily News - 9/28/2012.
By George Smith, George’s Outdoor News – Maine’s Department of Agriculture merged with the Department of Conservation on August 30, a date established in law by the legislature and governor. But the only thing merged was the name. It’s now the Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry. No one moved. No programs merged. No money was saved.
Green ribbons at an organic fair
The New York Times - 9/27/2012.
By Anne Raver – Organic food may not be feeding the world yet, but it was feeding thousands of people at the Common Ground Country Fair last weekend. The 36th Common Ground Country Fair organized by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association drew 59,000 people this year. And it netted $300,000 in ticket sales and booth fees, which pays for training programs for new farmers, workshops and operating expenses.
50 years after ‘Silent Spring’ we have ignored Rachel Carson’s findings to our peril
Washington Spectator - 9/27/2012.
By Joseph J. Mangano and Janette D. Sherman – Fifty years ago, a Johns Hopkins–educated zoologist did something that few at the time thought was possible. With the publication of one book, she started a national debate about the universally accepted use of synthetic pesticides, the irresponsibility of science, and the limits of technological promise.
USDA Oks tofu as a meat substitute in school lunches
Grist - 9/27/2012.
By Philip Bump – School lunches can now offer tofu as a “meat alternate,” thanks to a little-noticed announcement from the Department of Agriculture in January. If you’re looking for it in the government code, it’s at “7 C.F.R. 210.10(c)(2)(i)(D) of the regulatory text for the NSLP,” so just flip on over to that sub-sub-sub-sub-subsection.
