This winter I am infatuated by a new book, “The Wild Wisdom of Weeds” by Katrina Blair. I will give a full review of it in the upcoming edition of The Natural Farmer, but wanted to share some thoughts about chickweed here.
Many NOFA/Mass members responded to our Action Alert last month and contacted their legislators to ask them to co-sponsor HD 369, the new GMO labeling bill (the number may change soon as it goes from a House Docket number to a House Bill number). You will be pleased to hear that your work, plus that of the other members of our coalition – MASSPIRG, MoveOn.org, and MassRight2KnowGMO, has resulted in a majority of members of the Massachusetts Legislature, both House and Senate, having cosponsored the bill!
Starting on March 22nd at Brix Bounty Farm in Dartmouth, MA, Derek Christianson will host a season long, three workshop series focused on growing vegetables for health, quality and profit.
