"The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Industrial ag once again demanding free pass to crap in your backyard
Grist - 1/11/2011.
By Tom Philpott – I've long argued that chemical-intensive commodity agriculture could never flourish without the right to pollute freely and stomp on surrounding communities and landscapes. Evidently, Big Ag's greatest champions agree with me. Take the Chesapeake Bay. Once one of the nation's most productive sources of wild food, the area has become a virtual wasteland after decades of serving as a "toilet" for the poultry industry.
With modified seeds, the USDA breaks the rules yet again
The Atlantic - 1/11/2011.
By Barry Estabrook – If you want to understand the Obama administration's schizophrenic attitude toward agricultural issues, consider Tom Stearns. He is the founder and president of High Mowing Seeds, a small Vermont company that sells 100 percent organic fruit and vegetable seeds, primarily to commercial growers.
Number of organic farms growing
Maine Public Broadcasting - 1/11/2011.
By Jay Field – One of the hot workshops at this year's Maine Agricultural Trades Show is called Convergence Equals Sustainability. One group excluded from these sessions, organized by the Maine Farm Bureau, is MOFGA. MOFGA's exclusion comes as it releases a new report, showing growth in the number of organic farms in Maine and in the amount of revenue and jobs they create.

By Mechele Cooper – Augusta: At the Agricultural Trades Show that starts Tuesday at the Augusta Civic Center, the Maine Farm Bureau is hosting a "Convergence = Sustainability" workshop for the second year in a row. The theme of the workshop is to promote co-existence of organic and conventional farming along with genetically engineered crops. But members of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association are excluded from the meeting.
