Green Chit Chat

Just a few updates from hither and yon.

Our region has just recently emerged from a series of MRSA outbreaks. Here's an interesting piece from Salon on MRSA and the foods we "produce" and eat called "Is the way we raise our food giving us MRSA?"

MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Some opportunities for green educational grants from the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA estimates that 70 awards will be given and will be for approximately $20,000 a piece "...to support environmental education projects that promote environmental stewardship and help develop aware and responsible students, teachers, and citizens. This grant program provides financial support to seed innovative projects that design, demonstrate, or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques ..." Deadline is December 20th.

And...we are experiencing technical difficulties with the home computer...please stay tuned. We appreciate your patience and hope to return to our regularly scheduled blog posts as soon as possible.

Hi Amy. I haven't read the link yet, but does it have to do with antibiotics in animals? Pretty scary stuff.

FYI, our turkey is a fresh Purdue, 24-pounder. My hubby paid $.89 per pound. He goes to pick it up today.
