Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The Toxicity Panic
The Atlantic - 4/28/2011.
By Judith Shulevitz. The contemporary fear of plastics and other household menaces can’t possibly be justified—or can it?
Black Bear Dining considers Maine-grown food a ‘top priority’
Mobile Maine News - 4/28/2011.
Black Bear Dining has increased its offering of Maine-grown produce by 50 percent within the past year.
Organic Produce Growth Loses Some Power but Remains Strong
Organic Consumers - 4/27/2011.
by Ashley Bentley of The Packer. Organic produce leads the way for the entire organic industry in 2011. The Organic Trade Association released its 2011 Organic Industry Survey in mid-April, which reflected less than 8% growth in the organic industry overall, but almost 40% growth in organic fruits and vegetables. The organic sector was a $28.6 billion industry in 2010, with organic produce responsible for $10.6 billion - up almost 12% from 2009.

Mother Jones - 4/27/2011.
by Josh Harkinson. Poop may be the least of the problems with biosolids; sludge's dirty secret is that it can contain anything that goes down the drain—from Prozac flushed down toilets to motor oil hosed from factory floors. A 2009 EPA survey of sludge samples from across the US found nearly universal contamination by 10 flame retardants and 12 pharmaceuticals and exceptionally high levels of endocrine disruptors such as triclosan, an ingredient in antibacterial soap that scientists believe is killing amphibians. Large food processors such as H.J. Heinz won't allow crops grown with sludge in any of their products.
