Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Things fall apart – slowly
Casaubon’s Book - 8/12/2010.
By Sharon Astyk – Actually, it isn't all that slow, because a decade ago, all of this would have been largely unthinkable. The problem is that we don't see the gradual decline and fall – we are only vaguely aware that some things aren't quite what they used to be, and our progressive narrative tells us that they will soon be much better.
State can stop use of chemical that is linked to many diseases
Kennebec Journal - 8/12/2010.
Op-ed by Blair Braverman – In 2008, the state of Maine became a leader in safe chemicals legislation when it passed the Maine Kid-Safe Products Act, a law that aimed to protect children and babies from toxic chemicals in consumer products. As part of this law, the state pledged to identify two hazardous substances each year – called priority chemicals – and phase them out of products intended for children.
Risk to kids from toxic pesticides may be underestimated, study finds
Grist - 8/12/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – When kids eat conventionally grown fruits and vegetables, what level of pesticide residues are they taking in – and to what effect? The answers to those questions remain murky, because little research has been done. But evidence is bulding that the way we think about pesticide risk, especially in children, is all wrong.
Farm league
Mainebiz - 8/11/2010.
By Elizabeth Banwell – When Amber Lambke and Michael Scholz walk through the old Somerset County Jail in downtown Skowhegan, they don't see the warren of empty cells that held 75 inmates until two years ago. Instead, the business partners and proud owners of the 14,000-square-foot building envision what will exist a year from now: pottery and artists' studios, a knit shop, a year-round grocery stocking locally grown food, a commercial kitchen and the four-story Somerset Grist Mill that will produce flour harvested from 600 acres of wheat grown by nearby farmers.
