Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Winter farmers market hopes for off-season growth spurt
Portland Press Herald - 11/5/2012.
By Gillian Graham – Scarborough: Joe Viscano is hoping a few thousand lettuce seeds will go a long way toward supporting local agriculture. The owner of Highland Avenue Greenhouse and Farm Market has filled one of his greenhouses – usually empty this time of year – with trays of 30 varieties of winter greens, all bound for local restaurants. In another greenhouse he's started a winter farmers market.
Did farmers of the past know more than we do?
The New York Times - 11/4/2012.
By Verlyn Klinkenborg – A couple years ago, I saw a small field of oats growing in northwest Iowa – a 40-acre patch in a sea of genetically modified corn and soybeans. It was an unusual sight. I asked my cousins, who still farm what my dad always called the “home place,” whether someone had added oats to the rotation of crops being planted. The answer was no. The purpose of that patch of oats was manure mitigation.
For dairy farmers, loss of Bangor Garelick facility hits home
Bangor Daily News - 11/3/2012.
By Whit Richardson – Bangor: For the dairy farmers who sell their milk to the Garelick Farms production facility in Bangor, which will close in January, the loss of the facility is more than a blow to business, it’s the loss of a tradition. Dick Perkins, a dairy farmer in Charleston, and his family have been selling their milk to the Bangor plant for decades. Before it was owned by Garelick Farms, it was Grant’s Dairy, a locally owned company that bought milk from local farmers, bottled it and sold it to local consumers.
Waldo County reentry center garden project sows educational rewards
Bangor Daily News - 11/1/2012.
By Bill Shorey – Early in 2010, I sat down with Waldo County Sheriff Scott Story to discuss the possibility of a garden project that would be good training for our inmates – who we refer to as clients – in the Maine Coastal Regional Reentry Center and better help them transition back to their home communities. The project would also benefit all the food cupboards and soup kitchens in Waldo County.
