Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Secret Merger Plan Created for State Agencies
Down East - 12/13/2011.
by George Smith. The LePage administration has prepared a detailed plan for the governor’s proposed merger of the Departments of Agriculture and Conservation, although it has not been circulated and its existence was a surprise to some key people in those agencies whom I contacted for comments.
The bugs that ate Monsanto
Grist - 12/13/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – Now that 94 percent of the soy and 70 percent of the corn grown in the U.S. are genetically modified, Monsanto – one of the companies that dominates the GMO seed market – might look to some like it's winning. But if we look a little closer, I'd say they're holding on by a thread.

But in fact, he demonstrated how important the growing and distribution of food can be to the rebirth and revitalization of our cities and towns.
