Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Food stamps should buy only nutritious foods
Kennebec Journal - 3/15/2009.
Op-ed by Janis Cross – I was a family economist with the Consumer and Food Economics Research Division of the Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C., which designed and piloted the Food Stamp Act of 1964. The major goal of the law was to raise the nutrition level among people in low-income households.
Artfully done
Maine Sunday Telegram - 3/15/2009.
By Ray Routhier – So what can a gardener learn from an artist? Well, the first thing, says painter Ann Stein-Aaron of Cushing, is that anyone who gardens is already an artist. "You're moving things around, working with colors, working on the visual presentation," Stein-Aaron said.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 3/15/2009.
By Ray Routhier – Maine Maple Sunday is a pretty sweet deal. Maple producers around the state open up their farms and sugarhouses to folks for free as a way to promote Maine's maple industry. The annual event is scheduled for next Sunday, March 22. So now's the time to start planning a visit. Most participating farms offer maple boiling demonstrations and let you stroll among the tapped trees. Many have free syrup samples, some atop ice cream, and many have farm animals to gaze at. Some will even have free wagon or sleigh rides.
Quebec website promotes buying local, organic products
Montreal Gazette - 3/15/2009.
By Michelle Lalonde – "We need to encourage the purchasing of locally produced organic products by making them easily recognizable by the consumer," said Denis Paul Bouffard, president of the Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants, or CARTV. The CARTV has also recently launched a label, BioQuebec, which allows Quebec producers to identify their products not only as organic, but as made in Quebec.
