Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New climate prediction: ‘Weird’, getting weirder
Portland Press Herald - 11/2/2011.
By Seth Borenstein (AP) – For a world already weary of weather catastrophes, the latest warning from top climate scientists paints a grim future: more floods, more heat waves, more droughts, and greater costs to deal with them. A draft summary of an international scientific report obtained by The Associated Press says the extremes caused by global warming could eventually grow so severe that some locations become “increasingly marginal as places to live.”
Sharp, careful eye brings Maine mushrooms from forest to table
Portland Press Herald - 11/2/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – On a crisp morning at the end of October, chef David Ross and I step off a dirt road in Kennebunk and head into a forest dominated by pines and smaller hardwood.

This trip will mark one of the last of the year for Ross, who is an avid mushroom forager and the owner of 50 Local in Kennebunk.

Still, things aren't quite so hectic as in the spring planting and fall harvest seasons and so, this winter Jordan will use the down time at her Wells Road farm to log time as a consultant for Land For Good, a Keene, N.H., nonprofit that seeks to connect young, beginning farmers with older tracts of land.
