Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Harvest on the Harbor
Portland Press Herald - 10/6/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Chef Michael Ruoss has enjoyed watching Portland's reputation as a food town grow ever since he toiled in the student kitchens at Southern Maine Community College. Ruoss worked at the Seaman's Club and the Snow Squall just across the bridge, then went on to make a name for himself in New Orleans.
Apple Galette: Worth making from scratch
Bangor Daily News - 10/6/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – Here is a rustic little apple dish for a nice occasion, the recipe for which Carla Parsons in Harrington gave me. Carla makes pastry like this the way other people make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Carla and her mom, my friend Diane Ferris, used to run a bakery in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. So, where having to make pastry slows me right down, Carla and Diane whip it right out with alacrity.

Yes! - 10/5/2010.
By Heather Day, Travis English – We had just been visiting farmers cultivating land in the lush, steep hills north of the town of Thika in central Kenya. Samuel Nderitu, our guide and host, had one more project he wanted us to see: the Tumaini Women’s Group. They were meeting to found their community's first seed bank.
PeaceJam offers food for thought at Mount View

But a closer look reveals that the meals offered in the lunch program are anything but the hot lunches the parents of today's students likely experienced.
