A reminder of washing hands and following proper handling procedures.

An article to help remind us all that we need to be aware of the potential hazards of handling livestock and know that people do get sick from cute baby chicks. 

An Example: ----------------------------------------

Violet (my daughter):  Can I hold the baby chickens?  

Me: Yes, Violet, you can hold the new babies, but please wash your hands after.  Before you go eating cherry tomatoes off the vine.

More Than Honey - The Movie

A new documentary coming out June 12th that looks to have some incredible visual appeal and open up discussion about the importance of bees to our food security and planetary health.  I hope it gets more people talking about the incredible predicament we face with the decline of bee populations and the effects we will have to deal with. 

I am looking forward to seeing this movie.  Anyone else interested in seeing this film?

Citrus Greening / Asian citrus psyllid

Came across this article this morning about the issues commercial citrus growers are having with Greening Disease: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/10/us/disease-threatens-floridas-citrus-industry.html

Anyone experiencing problems on the small scale, individual level with Greening and psyllids?
