Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Pushing for local food in the farm bill: an interview with Chellie Pingree
Grist - 6/6/2012.
By Enrique Gili – Does local and organic food matter more to people in Maine than it does to other Americans? It’s possible, but Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) insists that’s not why she introduced the Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act, a small but encouraging set of legislative reforms meant to accompany this year’s farm bill.

Grist - 6/6/2012.
By Twilight Greenaway – Rita has worked for the same Missouri-based pork processing company for 13 years. And yet she feels like she could lose her job at any time. If this 49-year-old mother of four is late for work by as little as five minutes, that’s one strike. If she takes more than her allotted seven minutes to race to the bathroom and back, that’s another strike. Three strikes is all it takes.

Bangor Daily News - 6/4/2012.

The market opened for the first time on a rainy Sunday afternoon in the parking area across from the Bangor Public Library. In spite of the weather, dozens of people perused the market, crowding under tents where they could to avoid the heavier spurts of rain.
