"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New ideas on nourishing the lawn
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/28/2010.
By Tom Atwell – Lawns are important. They make the landscape look better. They improve visibility along roadways and around the home. They keep pests away. They provide a place to play. “Turfgrass is an important part of the landscape,” Jesse O’Brien of Down East Turf Farms in Kennebunk recently told a group made up mostly of lawn-care professionals at O’Donal’s Nursery in Gorham. “The more people care about their property, the more turf is an essential part of it.”
'Pesticide Drift' Eluding Efforts To Combat It
National Public Radio - 2/28/2010.
By Sasha Khokha – The Environmental Protection Agency is considering a petition from farm worker and public health advocates to ban pesticide spraying near schools, hospitals and child care centers. Part of the evidence they cite comes from California, the nation's largest agricultural producer, and a state where pesticides carried from the fields by winds sicken hundreds of people each year.
Greenhouse project promotes self-sufficiency
Bangor Daily News - 2/27/2010.
By Rich Hewitt – Brooksville: A grass-roots project seeks to promote self-reliance and self-sufficiency by making low-cost greenhouses available to interested individuals and institutions. The Greenhouse Project, sponsored by the United Methodist Church of South Brooksville through The Reversing Falls Sanctuary, already has built several small greenhouses in the area – including one at the Brooksville Elementary School, which has been growing vegetables throughout the winter months.
Savory ways to enjoy different types of squash
Bangor Daily News - 2/27/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – A few weeks ago, we regaled you with squash pie at its sweet best, and now it is time to talk about savory squash. Our squashes – butternuts, buttercups, kubocha, and Delicata – are holding up pretty well, though the pumpkins broke out in soft spots last week and have been cooked and whisked into the freezer.
