Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
24 hours in Belfast for the locavore
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 7/15/2013.
By Kay Stevens - You have your own garden, you own a CSA share and you're not afraid to ask the waiter 20 questions on where it was grown, if it's local and in season. When the locavore goes on vacation, it's all about the food and drink. Belfast has always had the earthy, artsy vibe, but like its Midcoast siblings Camden and Rockland, this bohemian town has been steadily gaining a hip reputation over the last 10 years, largely due to the artists and new eateries moving in. So come to Belfast where cool meets collectivism and get ready to spend 24 hours in locavore heaven.
GMO labeling bill gets backing from natural-food, supplement group
The Hill - 7/15/2013.
By Julian Hattem - The Natural Products Association, which represents more than 2,000 supplement, health food and beauty companies, is supporting a bipartisan bill introduced by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) to mandate labeling on foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Nation of Change - 7/15/2013.
By Christina Sarich - Less than a week ago, Monsanto got more than a slap on the wrist from the Indian government – they were delivered two fat rejections – one from the patent appeals court and another rejection that was upheld by the Intellectual Property Appellate Board.
Where You Can Pick Blueberries in Maine
