2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Front yard vegetable gardens: different is good
Treehugger - 7/12/2011.
By Colleen Vanderlinden – Since I wrote about the Michigan woman who is facing 93 days in jail for planting a vegetable garden last Friday, the story has just exploded. TIME, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Geek Mom, CRAFT, Grist, and Daily Kos - along with plenty of other blogs - have covered the story. It never fails that someone in the comment section defends the city of Oak Park's actions by saying "why should the neighbors have to look at that?"
Drought spreads its pain across 14 states
The New York Times - 7/12/2011.
By Kim Severson and Kirk Johnson – Colquitt, Georgia: The heat and the drought are so bad in this southwest corner of Georgia that hogs can barely eat. Corn, a lucrative crop with a notorious thirst, is burning up in fields. Cotton plants are too weak to punch through soil so dry it might as well be pavement.
Pesticide pathways into the atmosphere
Science Daily - 7/12/2011.
When soil moisture levels increase, pesticide losses to the atmosphere through volatilization also rise. In one long-term field study, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists found that herbicide volatilization consistently resulted in herbicide losses that exceed losses from field runoff.
Cows Have Best Friends and Suffer When Separated
Treehugger - 7/12/2011.
