Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Healthy food a luxury for some budgets
Kennebec Journal - 3/29/2009.
Op-ed by Mark Winne – Let me say from the outset that I eat well. Not well in a maternal, "please finish your broccoli, dear" sense. I mean very well. I cultivate a large organic garden, buy grass-fed beef from a local rancher, and when I'm feeling particularly flush with cash, frequent my local Whole Foods.

By Jeffrey Tomich – Earlier this month, a blogger named Brad fired a virtual salvo at Jeffrey Smith, the author of "Seeds of Deception" and one of the most vocal crusaders against genetically modified foods.
