Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Curious observations about the drought
The Contrary Farmer - 9/8/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – To keep from becoming too depressed over the drought, I try to find lessons to learn from it, like trying not to be envious when rain falls on nearby farms but not ours. Two occurrences in my pastures suggest a teeny bit of optimism, but they run contrary to the way I usually think about pasture farming. That is to say, both occurrences involve plants whose names up to now have been hard for me to say out loud without prefixing them with cuss words.
Maine organic food fans: it’s about the chemicals
Maine Public Broadcasting - 9/7/2012.
By Patty B. Wight – When faced with the choice of eating organic or conventional food, which is more nutritious? A study published this week by scientists from Stanford University found that there is virtually no difference. But as Patty Wight reports, those who favor organic say there are reasons beyond nutrition that steer their food preferences.
Mothers, scientists, physicians take on lobbyists in Maine BPA battle
Kennebec Journal - 9/7/2012.
By Susan M. Cover – Augusta: Jessica Graham, a mother of two from Waterville, said Thursday that parents shouldn't have to spend a lot of time in the grocery aisle trying to determine whether the foods they are buying for their children may contain a chemical called bisphenol-A. "Even though I have spent hours researching it, it is very difficult to know," she said.
Local chefs to raise money for Portland Farmers Market
Portland Press Herald - 9/7/2012.
By Meredith Goad – Portlanders can show their farmers market some love on Sept. 29 at a major fundraiser featuring local food prepared by staff from the city's best restaurant kitchens. Tickets go on sale Friday for "Bunker Down Fest: A Fundraiser for the Portland Farmers Market."
