Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Mainer fights cuts to organic farming
Kennebec Journal - 4/7/2011.
By Jonathan Riskind – Washington: When Sarah Smith's Grassland Organic Farm in Skowhegan needed help to create pastures where cows could graze even in a summer drought, a U.S. Department of Agriculture program chipped in $1,300 and priceless expert advice. That and other programs that boost organic farmers could be cut as lawmakers struggle with spending priorities, with the focus on reducing the federal deficit and national debt.
Poll: Mainers want strong environmental laws
Bangor Daily News - 4/7/2011.
AP – Portland: A poll released as environmental laws come under attack in Augusta indicates Mainers want economic prosperity without rolling back environmental rules and regulations. The Critical Insights survey says nine of 10 Maine voters believe protection of the environment should be a priority, with 53 percent deeming it a “high priority.”
Lesson learned: appreciate everything that goes into a meal
Portland Press Herald - 4/6/2011.
By Anne Mahle – This winter, I've been working with a farmer/chef, Neal Foley, of Claddah Farms in Montville, where he raises all of his own animals and sells a good bit of them through butchery and cooking classes.
