2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Revitalize Rural America? First grow some backbone
Huffington Post - 6/9/2010.
By Eric Holt Gimenez – U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack recently declared a "silent" crisis in rural America. Silent? The American farmers testifying at the joint antitrust listening sessions held by the USDA and Department of Justice (DoJ) were loud enough. If their denunciation of the monopolies controlling our food system – and government inaction on antitrust abuse – is silence, it is only because their voices fell on deaf ears.
Settlement reached in Maine egg farm probe
Kennebec Journal - 6/7/2010.
AP – Turner: A civil settlement has been reached in an animal cruelty case involving Maine's largest egg farm. Under the agreement signed today, Maine Contract Farming of Turner admitted to 10 civil counts of animal cruelty. It will pay $25,000 in penalties and a one-time payment of $100,000 to the Maine Department of Agriculture for monitoring of hens at egg farms across the state.
Questions crop up after an odd start to growing season
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/6/2010.
By Tom Atwell – This week I'm catching up on the mailbox. It's spring, the gardening season is going well, and there are a lot of little things you should know. This is something I've mentioned in my blog, but not in print, and a lot of people have been asking about it: The damaged foliage, blooms and buds on your plants are from frost damage.
Farmers markets’ pilot program targets food assistance recipients
Bangor Daily News - 6/5/2010.
By Christopher Cousins – Skowhegan: Several farmers markets in Maine are involved in a pilot project that the organizers hope will help illustrate a link between more affordable fresh produce and healthier people. The Wholesome Wave Foundation is instituting a “Veggie Prescription” program in Maine that allows doctors to give low-income patients farmers market vouchers so they can make more-healthful diet choices for less money.
