Below is a link to information on the "Local Foods to Local Markets Bill" (SB11-258) which will be discussed tomorrow in the Colorado Senate. Please review this information and reach out to communicate your support of this bill. By encouraging local food production and businesses, we can have a direct and profound effect on the number of farms and acres used to grow local and healthy food for Boulder County and Colorado residents. The secondary effect is that these acres will NOT be planted with GMO commodity crops and the treated with the subsequent problem chemicals.

 

Sometimes the best way to eliminate a negative is to support the opposing positive.

Please forward this information to everyone on your email list living in Colorado who you feel would support this bill.

Sustainable Community: Practical solutions for health and the environment

April 8-9, Colorado School of Public Health, Aurora, CO

 

From organic gardening and backyard beekeeping to banning genetically engineered crops and learning how to manage our yards, parks and farmland organically, the Sustainable Community conference is packed full of exciting speakers and interactive workshops. This national environmental conference will be held April 8-9 (beginning Friday evening) at the Colorado School of Public Health in Aurora, Colorado. Register now for the early registration rate of $35, www.beyondpesticides.org/forum.

 

Maria Rodale, author of Organic Manifesto and CEO of Rodale Inc., publisher of Organic Gardening and Prevention magazines, will serve as keynote speaker. Other speaker highlights include: Tom Theobald, beekeeper who exposed EPA's memo showing its flawed science in registering a bee-killing pesticide; George Kimbrell, lawyer leading the fight to ban genetically engineered alfalfa; Theo Colborn, PhD, author of Our Stolen Future and president of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange; Benjamin Ross, PhD, author of The Polluters, the acclaimed book about the history of the chemical industry; and many more.

 

Leading up to the conference, there will be hosting a free screening of the award-winning film Vanishing of the Bees, Wednesday, April 6th @ 7:00pm at the Denver Botanic Gardens (1007 York Street). The film takes a piercing investigative look at the economic, political and ecological implications of the worldwide disappearance of the honeybee and empowers the audience to fight back. Join us for the film Wednesday evening, and then learn more about Colony Collapse Disorder at the Forum. The film is free. www.beyondpesticides.org/forum/beefilm.htm

 

The Forum is sponsored by Beyond Pesticides, Alliance for Sustainable Colorado, Colorado School of Public Health - Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Denver Beekeeping Association, Denver Urban Gardens, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, Grow Local Colorado, Mountain and Plains Education and Research Center, Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Sierra Club, Slow Food Denver, and University of Colorado Environmental Center.

Note that I've updated the T/WAB section of my Web site, including moving the main page.  I plan to make local observations and record them there.  Let me know if you'd like me to post anything for you.  I've included a Google Earth file which currently includes basic Colorado information such as geology, ecology, and projected water availability; it will be updated with select observational data.
