Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Nine Maine counties set weather records, environmental group says
Portland Press Herald - 1/21/2013.
By North Cairn - Nine Maine counties set monthly records for high temperatures or rainfall last year, putting the state among the top 10 nationally in a ranking compiled by a national environmental group.
Goldman bankers get rich betting on food prices as millions starve
The Independent - 1/20/2013.
Goldman Sachs made more than a quarter of a billion pounds last year by speculating on food staples, reigniting the controversy over banks profiting from the global food crisis. The extent of Goldman's food speculation can be revealed after the UN warned that the world could face a major hunger crisis in 2013, after failed harvests in the US and Ukraine. Food prices surged last summer, with cereal prices hitting a record high in September.
A Personal Forest
The Great Change - 1/20/2013.
By Albert Bates - When I was a young boy my parents moved from the Chicago suburbs to a hardwood forested area of Connecticut, which is where I grew up. My back yard was those woods, and I used to have play forts, many different camping or hiding areas, and a succession of tree houses. I liked to overnight on a mattress of pine needles in a small grove of pines, and sometimes even did that in a foot of fresh, powdered snow.
Starks agriculture group Maine first
Kennebec Journal - 1/20/2013.
By Pachel Ohm - Starks: Paul Frederic is a farmer, a selectman, and part of the newly formed Starks Agriculture Commission, an organization set up to protect and promote the interests of farmers and agriculturists. The commission is the first in the state, said Jim Murphy, a retired biochemist from Boston and the chairman of the group of townspeople forming the commission, although such groups do exist outside of Maine.
