"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."
- Albert Howard, The Soil and Health, 1947

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.
State, industry agree on DECA phaseout
Kennebec Journal - 2/5/2010.
By Ethan Wilensky-Lanford – Representatives from an environmental advocacy group and a company that distributes plastic pallets containing a toxic flame retardant told lawmakers Thursday they were close to reaching a compromise to phase out new pallet production "as soon as practicable."
So, just what is a CSA?
Kennebec Journal - 2/5/2010.
By Denis Thoet - Imagine a group of people sending you checks for $100, $350 and $500 from January to June so that you can stockpile around $20,000 to 30,000 before you have to produce a thing in return. And there are no signed contracts with specific delivery requirements.
Permit bank to help rural fishing fleet
Portland Press Herald - 2/5/2010.
By John Richardson – Federal and state agencies are setting up a commercial fishing permit bank to support small-scale fishermen in rural ports along the Maine coast. The bank would buy and hold groundfish permits, which entitle owners to a certain number of fishing days or pounds of haddock, flounder and other species. It would then divide up the fishing rights and lease them to eligible fishermen to help them stay in business until fish populations recover.
