Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Winthrop: Farmers’ market location upsets some
Kennebec Journal - 5/6/2009.
By Betty Adams – Jostling for space for fruit, vegetables and customers has left a bad taste for some vendors of the Winthrop Farmers' Market. When it reopens for the season Saturday, the market will be short at least two vendors from last year and possibly more, Monika Riney of Wildermirth Farm told town councilors Monday night.
Farmers market to open Saturday in Skowhegan
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 5/6/2009.
By Doug Harlow – Fresh, local food is set to return to the open air Saturday when the 12th annual Skowhegan Farmers' Market opens for the summer. Area farmers will gather in the parking lot in front of the old Grange building on Madison Avenue Saturday for the debut.
Growing your own a growing trend
Portland Daily Sun - 5/6/2009.
By David Carkhuff – From the White House to the henhouse, participants in the May 7-10 Food and Farm sustainable agriculture conference have found friends in high places and among a growing contingent of ordinary consumers, according to Jon Courtney, organizer of the annual conference.
The stalk of the town (Get your rhubarb recipes ready)
Bangor Daily News - 5/6/2009.
By Emily Burnham – Praise to you, lowly rhubarb. Green- and red-stalked denizen of backyards, cousin to buckwheat and sorrel, second cousin to cactus, carnation and, yes, the Venus’ flytrap. Native to Asia, brought to America in the 1820s, you flower worldwide each spring in great abundance, much to the chagrin of gardeners and landscapers.
