Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
When the uprooted put down roots
The New York Times - 10/9/2011.
By Patricia Leigh Brown – SAN DIEGO — At the Saturday farmer’s market in City Heights, a major portal for refugees, Khadija Musame, a Somali, arranges her freshly picked pumpkin leaves and lablab beans amid a United Nations of produce, including water spinach grown by a Cambodian refugee and amaranth, a grain harvested by Sarah Salie, who fled rebels in Liberia. Eaten with a touch of lemon by Africans, and coveted by Southeast Asians for soups, this crop is always a sell-out.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/9/2011.
By Tom Atwell – Diana George Chapin – who with her mother, Sandy George, runs the Heirloom Garden of Maine in Montville – loves fritillaria. Her particular favorite is Fritillaria meleagris, also called the checkered lily, which has small, checkered, bell-shaped flowers in maroon-purple and white.
Cooperative economy can be key to Maine’s future
Kennebec Journal - 10/9/2011.

For years, polls have shown that about 90 percent of Americans support the labeling of foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). That's about as close to a consensus as you're going to get in this country.
