Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Better chemicals mean better business
Lewiston-Auburn Sun Journal - 6/10/2012.
Op-ed by Adam Lee – Cars are safer and better now than at any other time in history. I am not just talking about anti-lock brakes or air bags; I am talking about the chemicals and substances that go in and come out of the cars.
Exeter farm uses poop to produce energy
Bangor Daily News - 6/8/2012.

Op-Ed by Denis Thoet – We are a relatively new farm, even by the standards of Maine, where new farms seem to crop up every day. Every year is a "building year" and this one is no different. Starting from scratch in 2004, our first year as a community-supported agriculture farm, we have bought hand tools, fencing and posts. We turned a former workshop into apprentice housing, built a 26-by-96-foot-high tunnel hoop house and sheep and cow sheds, built an 8-by-30-foot "sun space" off the west side of the house for spring seedlings, put in miles of drip irrigation, and built a 12-by-12-foot apartment off the apprentice house for year-round living.
