Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bees in freefall as study shows sharp US decline
The Guardian [UK] - 1/3/2011.
By Alok Jha – The abundance of four common species of bumblebee in the US has dropped by 96% in just the past few decades, according to the most comprehensive national census of the insects. Scientists said the alarming decline, which could have devastating implications for the pollination of both wild and farmed plants, was likely to be a result of disease and low genetic diversity in bee populations.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/2/2011.
By Ray Routhier – Gardeners, it's a new year. And just maybe it's the year you finally become a true master of the garden. You'll have the chance in the coming weeks and months, when classes around the state begin in the Master Gardener volunteer program run by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension.

Boston Globe - 1/2/2011.
By Nancy Heiser – Lincolnville: Picture a communal meal in the Old Country or the Napa Valley – the kind of close-to-the-land supper you see in movies where those gathered raise a glass to toast a table laden with simple, fresh food. Perhaps you wonder, to borrow a phrase from “30 Rock’’ ’s Liz Lemon, how to go to there. Must you travel so far? Not anymore.
