Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Congress To Consider Major Cuts To Organic Agriculture Programs
MOFGA Announcements - 10/20/2011.

On Monday, the U.S. House and Senate Agriculture Committees sent a joint letter to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Super Committee) promising to provide a detailed plan to cut $23 billion in agriculture spending by November 1st. The letter highlights the cuts that agricultural programs have sustained in recent years, as well as the 37 programs included in the 2008 Farm Bill that do not have baseline funding to continue beyond 2012.

Farmed salmon diet fattens mice
Environmental Health News - 10/20/2011.

A study with mice provides more evidence that a diet high in farmed salmon contaminated by persistent organic pollutants - POPs - contributes to weight gain and increases the risk of diabetes.

More wild mushrooms=bounty, danger
Kennebec Journal - 10/19/2011.
Portland – The tropical storms that drenched the Northeast this year left an unexpected bounty: Thousands of mushrooms have sprung up on some lawns, and foragers have filled bags with wild ones plucked from the earth, stumps and logs. "It was like a scene from 'Alice and Wonderland,'" said David Fischer, who wrote "Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America."
Wild crops abound to harvest, put up as we fall toward winter
Kennebec Journal - 10/19/2011.
Op-Ed by George Smith – Warblers arrive in the spring garbed in colorful clothing, but they head back south in the fall dressed in drab colors. There's got to be a message there, but those of us who don't follow the birds south are too busy getting ready for winter to recognize it.
