or not all of this means that the food
movement is past the pimply stage of early adolescence,
the fact is that California’s labeling fight broadened and
emboldened this movement’s power base just as we are heading into a
series of regulatory fights over new GE crops in the pipeline, and
preparing for what looks like a spring 2013 re-authorization battle
over the now-expired Food and Farm Bill.
the fiscal cliff and other D.C. distractions succeed in keeping
Congress from passing a 2012 Farm Bill in the lame duck session
despite our insistence that they get
off their duffs,
then the very same sustainable food and farming forces that gathered
together to push for Prop 37 will turn our attention and newly honed
skills to securing the kind of agricultural policy that withdraws
governmental support from the system of agriculture embodied by
Monsanto. For every additional dollar of funding we win for organic
that’s one dollar of public funding that will not be devoted to
developing more GE crops that fail
to deliver on promises to
farmers and the public. And in this Farm
we will bring to bear a broader base of power as well as a public
disabused of the notion that agricultural biotechnology is the best
thing since sliced bread."
The Yoga of Ecology is a collection of inspiring and action-packed resources for the spiritually-inclined eco-activist.
Alongside our collection of timely and practical articles, we offer a deeper perspective on our collective ecological crisis. It is a perspective rooted in time-tested, traditional wisdom that challenges us to remove the pollution within ourselves to truly remove the pollution from our external environment.
The Yoga of Ecology connects the internal environment of our self with the external environment we earnestly seek to preserve and make whole again. We have to realize that our ecological situation is one that is deeply personal.
