ATTRA TO BE DEFUNDED

One of the best programs that our government provided was ATTRA, an information and research agency for sustainable agraculture .  For growers, farmers, and young people who are going into food production, it is a wonderful way to get answers,  suggestions and support.   Expenditures are small and the benefits are great and it is a wonderful  way to go organic or sustainable.Go this site:      http://www.ncat.org/  See More

TRAGEDY: ATTRA FUNDS ELIMINATED

In 1914,  the Smith-Lever Act established funding for agricultural education and the extension division of land-grant colleges was established.  

These land grant colleges were established to help rural and other low-income students with access to higher education. These  were  established, not to help corporations, but to educate the less wealthy rural populations.   These land-grant colleges were one of the best things that our government has done.  In 1972,   Washington State…

Hi Patricia,

 I use a meter put out by Milwaukee for reading orp (oxidation reduction potential) But for PH I only have PH drops that turn different color to determine the PH level.

Milwaukee does make a meter that reads PH levels but it is expensive.

I will be with a group of people on Thursday night that have meters like you need, and if you would like I could see if there's a better deal than what Milwaukee offers.

Just let me know. I'll be at the Gastropub Friday night.

Bob Spinner
