Going local – safely
Kennebec Journal - 1/10/2010.
Op-ed by Rep. Jeff McCabe – The trends speak for themselves: local farming is booming across the country, with Maine leading the charge. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, farmers markets increased by 13 percent in 2009 and industry experts expect the trend to continue to boom in 2010. In the past 15 years, farmers markets have tripled, with much of the growth occurring in the past few years.
Revamped Bangor garden show to bloom anew
Bangor Daily News - 1/9/2010.
By Jessica Bloch – Bangor: After a one-year hiatus, one of the region’s sure signs of spring will blossom again in 2010. The city’s annual garden show, which was not held last year for financial reasons and after a drop in attendance in 2008, is scheduled to run from Friday, April 23, to Sunday, April 25.
