Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Common Ground fair keynote celebrates female farmers, male MOFGA leader
Kennebec Journal - 9/21/2013.
By Rachel Ohm - The keynote address at today's Common Ground Country Fair was about the role of women in agriculture, but it was dedicated to the family of a man remembered as a visionary in organic farming.
Pesticides' effect on generations of field-workers
San Francisco Chronicle - 9/21/2013.
By Stephanie M. Lee - Salinas: On a recent morning, the sun streamed through the doorway of Emelia Gonzalez's cozy store and onto rows of peaches, onions and tomatoes. Virtually every fruit and vegetable had been grown in or near the Salinas Valley, one of the most thriving agriculture regions in the world.
Crowds find Common Ground at Maine fair
Portland Press Herald - 9/21/2013.
By Jessica Hall - Unity: Instead of the typical fair staples such as cotton candy and carnival rides, the Common Ground Country Fair draws crowds seeking veggie burgers and workshops on worm composting. The fair has grown along with greater interest in organics, local food and sustainable agriculture.
Fermentation a popular topic at Common Ground Fair
Portland Press Herald - 9/21/2013.
By Doug Harlow - Unity: Bread, cheese, coffee, beer and yogurt all have one thing in common -- they are fermented from common bacteria. Bacteria is good. It's good for the immune system when battling infection in the body and it's good in digestion and in the preservation of food in the form of fermentation. That was part of the message at the Common Ground Country Fair on Friday from Sandor Katz, an author and fermentation expert who spoke on fermentation and food relocalization.
