"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Let’s Move Child Nutrition
Civil Eats - 5/14/2010.
By Debra Eschmeyer – Can you show the Mom-in-Chief how motivated we are to pass the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act? Back in April I attended the White House Childhood Obesity Summit on behalf of the National Farm to School Network. The purpose of the summit was to gather input from experts to create a roadmap leading to children reaching adulthood at a healthy weight.
A world of benefits from biotechnology? For whom?
Common Dreams - 5/14/2010.
By Jim Goodman – When the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) met in Chicago last week they were, no doubt, elated to hear that the U.S. State Department would be aggressively confronting critics of agricultural biotechnology. Wouldn't you think the State Department might have more pressing issues than carrying water for Monsanto and the rest of the biotechnology industry?

Bangor Daily News - 5/13/2010.
Associated Press – Augusta: The Maine Forest Service is warning residents in five towns to be alert to widespread infestations of browntail moth caterpillars. Officials say the caterpillars are most prevalent in Topsham, Bath, West Bath, Brunswick and Bowdoinham.
Be aware of pesticide exposure
Bangor Daily News - 5/13/2010.
Op-ed by Heather Spalding and Meredith Small – When land managers and neighbors have a simple system to communicate about pesticide spraying, they all benefit. Farmers have no interest in putting human health at risk, and neighbors aren’t trying to burden land managers with complicated and costly notification systems. Both want a system that is easy to understand and easy to use. To that end, Maine’s Board of Pesticides Control finds itself, once again, struggling to create effective and practical pesticide spray notification rules that work for everyone. Public participation in this process is essential.
