Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Hands-on kind of student digs lot deeper than most
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/12/2011.
By Edward D. Murphy – Portland: Emma Robinson broke some ground at Casco Bay High School, literally and figuratively. Her "intensive" at the school, a week-long exploration of a subject involving the whole school, led to the creation of a community garden which should provide fresh vegetables for the school's lunches.
Rockweed harvesting concerns likely will resurface
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/12/2011.
