Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine Voices: Urge Maine’s senators to stand up to polluters, fight for clean water
Portland Press Herald - 5/30/2015.
By Heather Spalding and Taryn Hallweaver - Maine’s waterways have long defined our state’s identity, supported our livelihoods and shaped our communities. From Moosehead to the Magalloway, to the thousands of ponds, streams and bogs that dot and crisscross our landscape, we have much to be proud of and much to protect.
In Gardiner, a new slaughterhouse boosts Maine’s agriculture infrastructure
Kennebec Journal - 5/30/2015.
By Paul Koenig - The poultry side of the slaughterhouse, the only USDA-inspected poultry slaughterhouse in Maine, opened in March; and the red meat side is expected to open this summer.
New Conservation Reserve Program Sign Ups Unveiled by USDA
National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 5/29/2015.
On Friday, May 29, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) made three announcements regarding the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP): first, USDA will hold a general sign up from December 1, 2015 through February 26, 2016; second, producers who have existing CRP contracts expiring in September 2015 can extend their contracts for one year; and third, 800,000 additional acres will be available for enrollment in special wildlife initiatives through the continuous sign up. Unlike the general sign up, producers can enroll through the continuous sign up at any time.
