MOFGA Appoints Russell Libby As Senior Policy Advisor
MOFGA Announcements - 10/16/2012.

At its Board of Directors Meeting on Sunday, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) appointed long-time Executive Director Russell Libby to a new position: Senior Policy Advisor. This appointment underscores MOFGA’s commitment to creating innovative public policy that supports organic local agriculture, protects the environment, and illuminates for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound farming practices.

MOFGA head Russell Libby stepping down
Kennebec Journal - 10/16/2012.
Unity – Russell Libby, executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, will resign Nov. 2 to become the organization's senior policy adviser. Heather Spalding, MOFGA's deputy director, will be interim executive director. "After 17-plus years as MOFGA's executive director, it feels like the right time to be moving to new challenges in my life," Libby said in a press release Tuesday. Libby became MOFGA's executive director in 1995 after more than a decade on the organization's board of directors.

That is probably not the study you heard about.

By Curtis Brainard – In the long-running debate about whether organic food is more healthy and nutritious than the conventional variety, the press has shown a preference for covering research rejecting the averred value of organics. Such was the point of a clever, but incomplete piece of criticism that appeared in The New York Times’s weekly Science Times section on Tuesday.
