Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers, customers preview growing season at CSA fair in Bangor
Bangor Daily News - 2/28/2011.
By Meg Haskell – Bangor: Winter is far from over – March in Maine being one of the snowiest and most blustery of months – but inside the Unitarian Universalist Church on Park Street on Sunday afternoon, spring got off to an early start.
