Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Strawberries popping nicely
Kennebec Journal - 6/17/2009.
The strawberry season in Maine should be a good one – big yield, big berries – as long as growers get a few consecutive days of sunshine and warm temperatures.
From college garden to dining hall – and beyond
Portland Press Herald - 6/17/2009.
By Melanie Creamer – Saint Joseph's College and its food vendor, Bon Appetit, have teamed up to plant a garden that will grow food for the college dining hall and donate fresh vegetables to Catherine's Cupboard Food Pantry in Standish. The yearlong pilot project is designed to educate students on methods of organic gardening and sustainable agriculture and teach children about gardening. "This has been a dream of mine," said Michial Russell, the farm manager and a volunteer at the food pantry. "One of our goals is to get healthy food back into the hands of people who don't have access to it.
Rockland renaissance
Portland Press Herald - 6/17/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Kerry Altiero likes to say that when he opened Cafe Miranda in 1993, people in Rockland thought he was a little nuts. Now, he jokes, they think he's some kind of genius. Susanne Ward and Patrick Reilley opened up Rock City Books & Coffee – a cafe, used bookstore and coffee shop – at about the same time. Locals were skeptical that lattes and espressos would take hold here, and gave them six months. Within two years, the business had to move to a larger space.
New USDA report shows direct-to-consumer food sales way up
Ethicurean - 6/17/2009.
A flea on the elephant’s back: The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service has released a new report on sales from direct-to-consumer food marketing (things like farmers markets and CSAs), using data from the last Census of Agriculture. The good news: sales were up 104.7% from 1997 to 2007, compared with an increase of 47.6% for total agriculture sales. (All six New England states made the top 10 list.) And now the bad news: even when you subtract non-food crops from the total agriculture sales figures, direct-to-consumer food marketing has only an 0.8% share.
