Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bangor Garden Show back in bloom
Bangor Daily News - 4/22/2010.
By Eric Russell – After a one-year hiatus, the Bangor Garden Show has returned to the Bangor Auditorium. The three-day event, which opens at 10 a.m. Friday and runs through 4 p.m. Sunday, will feature more than 50 area landscape and gardening vendors as well as several competitive gardening displays and a photo contest. Admission is $5, and children under age 12 get in free.
Earth Day, 2010
Bangor Daily News - 4/22/2010.
Editorial – A look back to the 1960s shows that the United States has made a lot of environmental progress since the first Earth Day, held on April 22, 1970. Still, although the nation’s rivers and streams are cleaner, the use of toxic chemicals is strictly regulated and recycling and energy conservation are mainstream, the country – and the world – face the largest environmental threat yet, in the form of climate change.
Awaken, Eaarthlings! (An Earth Day Missive)
Common Dreams - 4/22/2010.
By Jill Schneiderman – In his recent book, The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology (2008), the great Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh asserts that Buddhism, as a robust type of humanism, allows people to learn how to live on our planet not only responsibly, but with compassion and lovingkindness. Every Buddhist practitioner, he says, should have the capacity to “protect” the environment and determine the destiny of the Earth.
In Japan, a global meeting on local food
Grist - 4/21/2010.
By Elizabeth Henderson – Kobe, Japan: Attending the Urgenci conference "Community Supported Foods and Farming" in Kobe, Japan, in February reminded me that sometimes traveling to the other side of the world can bring new insights to our local work. Urgenci is an international network based in the south of France.
