Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine’s Cellar Door Winery
Bangor Daily News - 6/10/2009.
By Emily Burnham – The symbol displayed prominently throughout the property and incorporated into the logo of Cellardoor Vineyard in Lincolnville features two outward-facing half-circles split by a vertical line, and connected by a horizontal one. According to historical lore, hobos would carve this symbol into abandoned spaces during the 1930s to indicate that the space was safe and welcoming.
40 percent of Maine field corn called modified

Poisoning the planet
Resurgence - 6/8/2009.
By Miguel Alitieri – In 2007, Genetically modified (GM) crops were grown on 114.3 million hectares worldwide. Of the twenty-three countries which grow GM crops, Argentina and Brazil are the major players in South America, though the cultivation of transgenic crops is also expanding in Bolivia and Paraguay. The biotech industry claims that GM crops have met the expectations of millions of farmers in developing countries, delivering benefits to consumers and society through more affordable food that requires less pesticides to grow and hence leads to more sustainable farming. What corporations fail to mention is that Roundup Ready (RR) soybean accounts for 70% of all GM crops and is tolerant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, glyphosate.

"Can I pick the lettuce yet?" she asked, gazing at four curly-leafed plants glimmering in the sun. "What about the onions? Do I have to wait all year for them?" She didn't have to wait long for answers. "Sure, you can pull a lettuce leaf off right here. But don't pull too hard – you don't want to get the roots," said Joan Shaw of North Berwick, who is volunteering to help Lindsey tend her garden.
