Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic agriculture for biodiversity and pest control
Institute for Science in Society - 7/5/2010.
By Dr. Mae-Wan Ho – Scientists find organic fields have more even distribution of natural enemy species, thereby providing significantly better pest control than conventional fields and promoting plant growth.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/4/2010.
By John Richardson – Maine employers are already coping with rising costs related to overweight and obese workers. But they are in for a lot more if youth obesity rates stay as high as they are now, according to new research by the University of New England.
Fertile imagining
Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/4/2010.
By Ray Routhier – Boothbay: It's easy to see that the folks at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens had fun putting together the new 2-acre children's garden, scheduled to open to the public on Thursday. There's a pond with three bridges leading to two islands with blueberry bushes, which visitors are allowed to pick. Nestled among the bushes is a bronze bear cub from the classic Maine children's book "Blueberries for Sal" by Robert McCloskey, created by Boston sculptor Nancy Schon.
