Hope for the Earth: 3 Words

Regenerative Global Agriculture It’s that time of year again – the bells are ringing, and HOPE is supposed to fill the minds and hearts of holiday shoppers everywhere. But let’s be real – these are bizarre and bipolar times: Saturday’s front page of the NYTs published a historic editorial on The Gun Epidemic in America (a plea […]

The Bridge & the Bully

The latest news scandal from my home state of New Jersey has gridlocked the nation’s attention. Deep within New Jersey Governor Christie’s circle of trust, a political retribution command was initiated that resulted in a traffic jam the likes of which no one has ever witnessed. For four days starting on September 9, 2013, two […]

“What can we do with the color green?”

I wish by some miraculous turn of events, I could say “Abracadabra”… and poof… America would fall in love with vegetables as I did – decades ago. I resist owning how much of an anomaly I really am (because I LOVE VEGETABLES).  According to a study presented in this past Sunday’s NY Times feature magazine […]

How much does “COSTCO” cost us?

I loved the NY Times Op-Ed piece (9/17/13) by Frank Bruni, Hard Truths about Our Soft Bodies. It flipped on my rant-switch regarding a topic that has been near and dear to me for years – portion size in America. I laughed out loud as he described the familiar seduction of shopping in the great “buy-oversized-and-get-the-bargain” […]

On the one hand… I can say that Organic Consumers Association was being opportunistic by broadcasting their message – COOK ORGANIC NOT THE PLANET – at the “Forward on Climate Rally” to stop the Keystone pipeline held this past Sunday in Washington, D.C. It was, after all, the largest non-nuclear pro-environment march […]

BEWARE – If you don’t see it…it’s (most likely) there!

In the first few days post election, following the defeat of California’s Proposition 37 (the ballot initiative that would have required mandatory labeling of Genetically Engineered Food), I too, felt defeated. While the grass roots effort to raise consumer GMO awareness was substantial (the vote was 5,456,051 in favor, 5,990,280 against*), we lost Round One […]

Anger from the heart, action from love

Much has occurred since I sent out my last newsletter. I sure hope that you have made it through super-storm Sandy and the winds of change, literally. We were LUCKY in my Verona neighborhood.   The widespread destruction throughout the Northeast has left with me with a realization and one hopeful thought, that is, that […]

The fox will say the Chicken Littles are crying, ‘The sky is falling!’ and it appears it is!

On Monday morning, 9/17, I went to New York City with sign in hand to stand with others in solidarity against the use of unsafe GMO technology and the horrific practices of its most powerful progenitor – Monsanto. My destination: Times Square, in front of Good Morning America’s studio. Flip Side: For months, either Occupy […]

It’s GMO War: The monopoly vs. the people

  Last Thursday evening I attended a GMO panel discussion at CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College calledGMOs and Eco-labels: Getting More of the Story. Four distinguished panelists shared their knowledge from the front lines in battle against both Monsanto and the FDA about consumer right to know. I was left with an […]
