Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Go ahead, make a change
Portland Press Herald - 1/4/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Eating better has long been a top New Year’s resolution. No surprise, given that the turn of the calendar follows weeks of consuming too much holiday ham, buttered rolls and cream pie – a perfect recipe for feeling bloated, groggy and ready for change.
Maybe old tractors do die
Energy Bulletin - 1/4/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – After the conversations we had here recently about old tractors, I began to hear about a problem that really does affect their longevity. Ethanol in gasoline is not the wonder fuel it has been made out to be. It is causing problems when used in off-road vehicles – lawn motors, chain saws, boat motors, four wheelers, not to mention old tractors.
Monsanto lawsuit moves to pre-trial oral arguments
Portland Press Herald - 1/4/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – A judge has ordered pre-trial oral arguments in a case pitting organic farmers against agribusiness giant Monsanto. Headed by Maine potato farmer Jim Gerritsen, the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association, with legal backing from the Public Patent Foundation, filed a lawsuit in March 2011 questioning the validity of Monsanto's patents on genetically modified seeds.
Farmer Brown comes to town
Village Soup - 1/4/2012.
By Jeff Walls – An organic windfall now provides free hot soup for all those willing to make the journey to the Catholic church in Bar Harbor on Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m. Otter Creek gleaner Chris Brown serves several hearty concoctions to the masses, feeding the body while educating people on the finer points of gleaning, or “organic recycling.”
