4 times a year.
Jay Feldman, executive director, co-signed FAN's March 2004

the first-time use of sulfuryl fluoride as a food fumigant.

information available on all pesticides.
PAN is a global treasure.

newsletter. Members receive a monthly magazine.
NRDC have a staff of committed scientists and lawyers that review
EPA's policies. They have probably been the single largest US
environmental group to petition EPA on pesticide policy.
Organic Consumers Association
bi-weekly email newsletter - sign up at their website.
An excellent activist group watchdogging organic food issues.
Just wish they would take the issue of EPA's "List 4 Inerts"
in organic agriculture more seriously. Many of these "inerts"
are biologicallty active and all have been approved for use
in US organic agriculture. The "List 4 Inerts" are
categorized as either List 4A or List 4B. Sodium fluoride is
on List 4B along with a host of other chemicals that should
be banned from organic argiculture.

MDRGF is the reference NGO on pesticides issues in France
and is a member of PAN Europe. It informs on the dangers of
pesticides for health and the environment and promotes alternatives
as organic farming or IPM in agriculture and non chemical
methods for gardens and lawns. This excellent anti-pesticides
NGO group is strong and has a fabulous website. A great model.

they produce. The states are CT, MA, NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT.
A good organization that works to support organic farmers and
to promote organic food in the northeast US. They also sponsor
a yearly conference.
