Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Could Prop. 37 kill Monsanto’s GM seeds?
Mother Jones - 10/10/2012.
By Tom Philpott – You'd be forgiven for not noticing – unless you live in California, where you've likely been bombarded by geotargeted web ads and TV spots – but this election could spur a revolution in the way our food is made. Proposition 37, a popular Golden State ballot initiative, would require the labeling of food containing genetically modified (GM) ingredients.
A school of apples
Transition Norwich - 10/9/2012.
By Charlotte Du Cann – At Green Drinks we are looking at a map. It's no ordinary map of roads and houses and municipal buildings. It's a map of a community orchard, showing 100 fruit trees that were planted two years ago in the village of St James in Suffolk. Rob Parfitt who helped create the orchard is describing how a group rented the land (originally an over-grazed part of the common) and planted the trees, set around a restored shepherd hut which serves as an information centre and informal gathering space.
To growers, this fly comes on wings of evil
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/7/2012.
By Tom Atwell – When gardening news escapes the features sections and ends up in the hard news sections of newspaper and television reports, you know it is big – and probably bad. Such is the case with the spotted-wing drosophila, which was first detected in Maine last year and has made a full-scale invasion this year.
Why dead cows and bed bugs matter in the election
Bangor Daily News - 10/6/2012.
Editorial – When you step into the voting booth on Nov. 6 to make your decision on Question 2, you will probably not think about dead cows, spotted wing fruit flies or bed bugs and how they affect you. But that is precisely what Animal and Plant Diagnostic Services does on the Orono campus at the University of Maine. And the employees there will certainly be thinking about you casting your ballot.
