Weekend Reading - and Fun


An interesting study conducted in a Hardee's shows that a nice atmosphere means we eat less.

La Vida Locavore did a long, well-researched piece on GMO crops, super weeds and the escalating use of pesticides. Read it here.

Then, read a new study on GMOs and tumors. Corn and soy in this country are very likely to be GMO - read your ingredients carefully (including for school lunch) because these two items are nearly ubiquitous in processed foods.

New research supports NYC's big soft drink ban.


The backlash over the new nutritional guidelines for school lunch continue. High School students protesting the protein servings made this video.  The new rules require few grains and protein and a lot more fruits and vegetables.


The International Rescue Committee is helping refugees resettle by helping them create community gardens. Read more.


World Maker Faire is this weekend at the NY Hall of Science.

On Sunday, visit Old Westbury Gardens with your pooch for the Fall Dog Festival - including a costume contest and parade.

Sea Cliff's Pumpkin Patch at the Methodist Church opens on Saturday at 10am!

The Long Island Fair returns to Old Bethpage Restoration Village this weekend.

Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery has a Fall Festival on Saturday.

The 9th Annual Long Island Garlic Festival is this weekend at the Garden of Eve organic farm and market.
