Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
5 ways to help your community go local
Yes! - 2/4/2011.
By Jeff Milchen – For four consecutive years, Stacy Mitchell of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) has undertaken a unique research project, surveying thousands of independent businesses across the United States about their holiday season sales figures. The results of ILSR’s latest survey offered encouraging news for entrepreneurs battered by the recession and for organizations working to sustain vital communities.
Don’t shirk environment to save money
Bangor Daily News - 2/4/2011.
By Bob Duchesne – Last year, the DeCoster Egg Farm contributed to a national salmonella outbreak. It happened in Iowa and seven other states, but it didn’t happen in Maine. Maine regulations force DeCoster to follow stricter rules than some other states do, and that prevented an outbreak here. Given the chance before the outbreak, DeCoster might have joined one of Gov. Paul LePage’s red tape hearings to complain about Maine’s tough rules.
Environmentalists vow to take on LePage
Kennebec Journal - 2/4/2011.
By Beth Quimby – Augusta: Maine environmental groups say that fighting Gov. Paul LePage's proposed repeal of environmental regulations is their priority for this legislative session. The Maine Environmental Priorities Coalition, which represents 25 groups supported by about 100,000 members, vowed Thursday to fight any weakening of the state's environmental protections and came out in support of four measures, including several that the LePage administration opposes.
Never too late to set goals that put Maine on path to independence
Kennebec Journal - 2/4/2011.
By Denis Thoet – It’s a little late to make a New Year’s resolution. Most of them (“I promise to get back in shape,” “Two glasses of wine is my limit”) have already been broken by now. But it’s never too late to set goals.
