Help the NYC AIDS Housing Network and Books Through Bars Rebuild!

I'm hoping that members of the greater Radical Reference community will consider sending some funds towards a local NYC group that, among other things, provides space for a books-to-prisoners group (with which I happen to be involved as well). Pass it on!


Hello all -- This is a message from Books Through Bars, NYC's volunteer books-to-prisoners collective, about the recent fire and water damage at the New York City AIDS Housing Network, which has generously hosted us while we await ABC No Rio’s renovation.

The Organic Industry

Dr. Philip Howard (Assistant Professor of Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies at Michigan State University) maintains information graphics on the structure of the organic industry. Looks like a good resource for other researchers and activists, as well as regular consumers like you and me. Who owns what? Who's merged with whom? And more! (Thanks to the Park Slope Food Coop's "Linewaiters' Gazette" for recently reprinting one of these graphics.)
