Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Monsanto’s losing bet on GM sugar beets has bitter repercussions
Grist - 10/20/2010.

Portland Press Herald - 10/20/2010.

As a result, the organizers have been scrambling since Thursday to find other experts to fill in the gaps left by Bunker's absence. "Thankfully John's got a lot of contemporaries now," said Andrew Marshall, who directs educational programs for the Maine Organic Gardeners and Farmers Association, where the event will be held.
