Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Random USDA testing finds 34 unapproved pesticides on cilantro
Treehugger - 6/5/2011.
By Sara Novak – Hold the guacamole for just a moment and make sure that your cilantro is organic. Food safety came front and center this week when random USDA testing found 34 different varieties of pesticide residue atop a batch of conventional cilantro.
Genetically engineered salmon’s fishy promises
Grist - 6/5/2011.
By Paul Greenberg – The AquAdvantage salmon, in case you haven't heard about it, is an Atlantic salmon with a (much larger) Chinook salmon growth gene inserted into its DNA. This is coupled with a promoter from a third fish, an ocean pout, that keeps that growth gene more or less permanently in the "on" position. This makes for a fish that grows faster than an unmodified salmon.
General store to emphasize community
Kennebec Journal - 6/4/2011.
By Mechele Cooper – Whitefield: The old-time general store could be found in every community in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Taryn Hammer and Ben Marcus want to bring back the experience of simpler days gone by with Sheepscot General, their new store in a remolded milking parlor at Uncas Farms on Townhouse Road in Whitefield.
Fairgrounds will host 11th Fiber Frolic
Kennebec Journal - 6/3/2011.
By Michael Shepherd – Windsor: Llamas, alpacas, goats, rabbits – and the farmers who raise them for fiber spinning and weaving – will descend on the Windsor Fairgrounds this weekend for the 11th annual Maine Fiber Frolic. Betty Stover, the owner of Spinnakees' Farm in Augusta, said the event is laid back and is "one of the best fiber shows around" next to September's Common Ground Fair in Unity.
