Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Gulf Spill May Far Exceed Official Estimates
National Public Radio - 5/17/2010.
The amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico may be at least 10 times the size of official estimates, according to an exclusive analysis conducted for NPR. At NPR's request, experts examined video that BP released Wednesday. Their findings suggest the BP spill is already far larger than the 1989 Exxon Valdez accident in Alaska, which spilled at least 250,000 barrels of oil.
Maine organic farmers launch grain mill
Sun Journal - 5/17/2010.
By Lindsay Tice – Auburn: A group of 12 organic farmers has taken over the former Blue Seal grain mill in Auburn, creating what they believe to be the only organic grain mill in Maine.
Bugs in the greenhouse? Not necessarily a bad thing
Maine Sunday Telegram - 5/16/2010.
By Tom Atwell – Gardeners know how difficult it is to keep insects from eating their plants while in the garden. And when they get hit with aphids or whitefly in their indoor plants, that can be even worse. Now, think about controlling harmful insects in a commercial greenhouse, where local business operators grow from seeds or plugs (really tiny young plants) the seedlings you are going to be putting in your containers and beds this year. If those nurseries have major problems with insects, it could put them out of business.

Bangor Daily News - 5/15/2010.
By Eric Russell – Bangor: Roughly 25 percent of the state’s waste stream is made up of lawn and leaf clippings and food scraps – all of which can be turned into valuable compost. But while some residents and businesses have turned to composting as a way to effectively handle certain waste, it still doesn’t have a strong toehold in Maine.
