Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
More Mainers seeking food help
Bangor Daily News - 2/10/2010.
By Meg Haskell – As the economy stagnates and unemployment rates remain high, demand for food assistance in Maine is increasing. A recent report released by the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, Feeding America, found that unprecedented numbers of Mainers are seeking emergency food assistance from their local food pantries.
High levels of contaminant found in osprey eggs
Portland Press Herald - 2/9/2010.
By John Richardson – Osprey eggs in Casco Bay contain stain repellent and other industrial chemicals at levels that may be harming the birds, according to a Gorham-based researcher. The study adds to the growing evidence of industrial chemicals accumulating in the environment, potentially threatening human health and wildlife, said Wing Goodale, a scientist at the BioDiversity Research Institute who led the study.
Use pumpkin as a versatile base for soups
Bangor Daily News - 2/6/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – Whatever pumpkins we haven’t used by now do begin to get spots on them by this time of year. What to do with them? I could cook them and freeze the pulp for pumpkin bread or waffles. I could make pie, which would make the other person in this household a very happy camper. My personal opinion is that a person can eat just so much pie, and I think pumpkin is a nice vegetable. I cook it sometimes as if it were a squash.
The year of kohlrabi
Bangor Daily News - 2/6/2010.
By Reeser Manley – No other plant species can rival the diversity of vegetable garden forms found within the cabbage species, Brassica oleracea, which includes cabbages and cauliflower, kale and kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Since we grow all of these biennials as annuals, we never see the flowers or we would not be surprised by this lumping; in bloom, they all look pretty much alike. What is this kohlrabi? I’m sure some of you have grown it, but most, particularly those new to vegetable gardening, have little or no knowledge of this member of the group.
