Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fresh ideas for Portland farmers markets
Portland Press Herald - 2/15/2012.
By Kelley Bouchard – Mainers who receive federally funded food assistance will be able to use their electronic benefit cards to buy produce at certain farmers markets and farm stands in Portland and Lewiston, thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
End of New England shrimp fishing season looming
Kennebec Journal - 2/15/2012.
Portland – The end of the New England shrimp fishing season is looming. Regulators are expected to set a closure date for the fishery during a conference call today to review how much shrimp has been caught since the season began Jan. 2.
Recipes so good they had to be published again
Portland Press Herald - 2/15/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – An encounter with a camel's head in a Libyan market set Maine cookbook author and artist Jean Ann Pollard on the road to health food.

There, she witnessed a vendor cut off a camel's head, which promptly fell into a pile of manure. Next, the vendor picked up the head, sprayed it with DDT and sold it to a customer.
