On my “Balagan” today, for the interview segment (Digging in the Dirt) I’ll speak with Elizabeth Dyck, founder and co-ordinator of OGRIN, and PhD in Plant Science, from the University of Maine, Orono, through their sustainable agriculture program. She has conducted participatory research with organic and low-input farmers and gardeners in Kenya, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania. At the family owned, Global Organic Alliance Certified, Crimson Clover Farm, she conducts research, demonstrates organic management, and grows vegetables. We’ll talk about growing organic grains, and her organization The Organic Growers’ Research and Information-Sharing Network (OGRIN), which generates practical information for organic farmers and gardeners through participatory research, review articles, fact sheets on issues critical to organic farming, and by providing forums for information-exchange between growers. Elizabeth has been growing organically for almost 50 years!

Featured Guests:

  1. Jessa Boehner, International Program Associate with Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch who assesses the recent finalization of the Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement — and the next steps by opponents in their campaign to defeat Congressional approval of the pact.
  2. Matt Gardner, Executive Director of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy who discusses the recently published report from Citizens for Tax Justice, “Offshore Shell Games 2015,” which reveals that multinational corporations’ use of tax havens allows them to avoid an estimated $90 billion in federal income taxes each year.
  3. Mohammed Owedah and Maya Katz, members of the group Combatants for Peace, talk about their bi-national peace activist movement of former Israeli and Palestinian combatants who were once part of the cycle of violence and who decided to lay down weapons and to work together towards peace and coexistence in non-violent ways.
  4. Civil rights attorney James Otto talks about his law suit against the Walt Disney corporation for their layoff of over 850 U.S workers who were forced to train their low-wage foreign replacements before being fired — and the larger issue of fraudulent U.S. guest worker visas.

Tidings is archived at hazelkahan.com.
