Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Greg Marley, mushroom man, seeks to heal fungus fears
Bangor Daily News - 7/24/2010.
By Emily Burnham – For the past 35 years, Greg Marley, 55, has been a devoted amateur mycologist, teaching interested people about the many mushroom species right in our backyards in Maine that are delicious to eat and may confer a number of health benefits.

By Keith Edwards – Augusta: City councilors appear to be seeking balance between concerns herbicides are putting residents’ health at risk and the need to prevent weeds from damaging sidewalks and other public areas.
