Episode: Digging in the Dirt - Beyond Pesticides - Exec. Dir. Jay Feldman

  My guest on “ Digging in the Dirt" this episode is Jay Feldman of "Beyond Pesticides". We will be talking about the ramping up of pesticide use to combat the Zika mosquitos, amongst other topics on the chemical pesticide front..


Jay Feldman, executive director of Beyond Pesticides, is a co-founder of the organization and has served as its director since 1981. Jay dedicated himself to finding solutions to pesticide problems after working with farmworkers and small farmers through an EPA grant in 1978 to the organization Rural America (1977-1981). Since that time, Jay has helped to build Beyond Pesticides' capacity to assist local groups and impact national pesticide policy. He has tracked specific chemical effects, regulatory actions, and pesticide law. In September 2009, U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack appointed Jay to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), where he completed a 5 year term in January 2015.
