Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic farmers push for larger role
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/9/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – The Maine Farm Bureau will host a workshop, "Convergence = Sustainability," each day of the Maine Agricultural Trades Show, scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday at the Augusta Civic Center. While organizers say each workshop will address "food safety, biotechnology and the challenges of organic and modern farmers," Maine's largest organic farming organization won't be represented at the three sessions.
Currant events
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/9/2011.
By Tom Atwell – A group of Maine gardeners is trying to create a movement to make it legal to grow currants and similar fruits in Maine. Lisa Fernandes of Cape Elizabeth, who leads the Portland Permaculture Meetup, is coordinating the effort to get an old Maine law banning Ribes plants repealed. The law was enacted decades ago in an effort to control white pine blister rust, a plant disease that requires both pines and Ribes plants to persist.
Thousands likely to attend agriculture show
Kennebec Journal - 1/9/2011.
Augusta – More than 5,000 people from around the state are expected to attend the 70th Annual Maine Agricultural Trades Show at the Augusta Civic Center. Hosted by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Resources, the show will run Tuesday through Thursday and feature dozens of lectures, demonstrations, and meetings, as well as over 100 exhibits featuring the newest in agricultural products, equipment, and services.
Pesticide use, lobster deaths probed in Down East waters
Bangor Daily News - 1/8/2011.
By Bill Trotter – Parasites, pesticides, sick salmon and dead lobsters. These four things have become an issue in Passamaquoddy Bay, and no one seems to be happy about it. Not the salmon aquaculture operators, who are using pesticides to combat a damaging outbreak of sea lice at their fish pens in Passamaquoddy Bay and adjacent Cobscook Bay. Not environmentalists, who are concerned about the effect the pesticides might be having on surrounding marine life. And not lobster fishermen, who fear the use of pesticides has contributed to widespread lobster deaths in the past.
