Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.
The N2 dilemma: Is America fertilizing disaster?
Grist - 2/5/2010.
By Tom Philpott – Where does our food come from? These days, most people might think corn, the ubiquitous grain that provides the bulk of feed for our livestock; most of the sweetener for our soft drinks and snacks; and a large amount of our cooking fat. But where does the corn – and other staple crops – come from? The answer to that question lies beneath our feet. Healthy soil is our food system’s bottom line.
