Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The food movement’s final frontier: taking care of workers
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 farmers’ market finds success on first day in spite of rain, vendors say
Bangor Daily News - 6/4/2012.
By Nick McCrea – Bangor: It has been years in the making, but downtown Bangor finally has its farmers’ market. 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.
Penobscot resident wins farmland conservation award
Castine Patriot - 6/4/2012.
Paul Birdsall has been named the recipient of the 2012 Espy Land Heritage Award for his leadership in both local and statewide farmland conservation efforts spanning more than three decades.
Potato blight in NY could be traced back to Maine
Kennebec Journal - 6/1/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Late blight has been identified in an early planted potato field on New York's Long Island, raising the possibility that the contaminated seed potatoes came from Maine. Meg McGrath, a plant pathologist at Cornell University, said in an interview that the farmer bought two varieties from Maine with symptoms of the fungus. Eric Sideman, crop specialist with the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, notes that "Maine is a large supplier of potato seed. Now that we know that late blight is in the region, and also that it probably came from Maine seed, people should be scouting their fields."
