Today, Alternet published a piece I wrote about San Francisco giving gardeners sewage sludge under the guise of free “organic compost.” This piece has a particularly personal significance to me as a gardener and as an unofficial stepmother. Our garden is our food supply, but it’s also a play area and learning environment for my [...]

To Drill or Not to Drill 4.3.2010 CommonDreams.org Headlines
by Adam Federman
When Joyce Stone and her husband moved to Dimock, Pennsylvania 34 years ago, they found themselves in the middle of what would be the first of many environmental battles. It was not long after the oil shock of 1973 and there were plans to build a massive energy park in nearby Ararat consisting of ten nuclear and ten coal-fired power plants.

Should you eat eggs when pregnant? 3.3.2010 The Guardian -- Front Page
Following the clean-up of the British egg industry, is it still really necessary for pregnant women to avoid eating all but the most thoroughly cooked eggs? Very early on in my pregnancy I found myself heading towards Bayswater for no other reason than a need to satisfy a sudden intense craving for a parmesan custard from Le Cafe Anglais. My desire was so strong I could smell it - £4.75 worth of wobbly, cheesy goodness was going to be mine, and nothing was going to keep me from it. No one would know, I reasoned, so why not, just this once?

Not only might I compromise my own health and that of my ...

Ten top eco ski lodges and hotels 2.3.2010 The Guardian -- Front Page
Add a green glow to your ski holiday by staying in one of these stylish mountain retreats, from low-impact plush 'pods' in Switzerland to a 100-year-old French chalet 1. Alta Terra, Lavigerie, France A stone's throw from the laid-back village of Lavigerie, in the volcanic Auvergne region - one of France's most undiscovered ski destinations - this lodge ticks all the boxes. Once a faded 1920s hotel, it is now a cool, eco-friendly B&B, renovated using local materials (wood abounds).
