Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Planting the seeds of a revolution
The Boston Globe - 3/27/2009.
Op-ed by Ellen Goodman – You have to admit that this gives new meaning to the idea of a "shovel-ready project." There are now 1,100 square feet on the South Lawn of the White House being transformed into a kitchen garden.

Exposure can lead to expensive chronic disease and disability. As a result, we believe that getting these dangerous toxic chemicals off the shelves and out of our bodies must be a top priority.
