Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic, small farmers fret over FDA regulation
San Francisco Chronicle - 4/27/2010.
By Carolyn Lochhead – Washington: Small farmers in California who have led a national movement away from industrial agriculture face a looming crackdown on food safety that they say is geared to big corporate farms and will make it harder for them to survive.
Mother Nature’s employee of the month
Bangor Daily News - 4/27/2010.
A bee pollinates the blossom of a Sargent cherry tree in the Lyle E. Littlefield Ornamentals Trial Garden on the University of Maine campus Saturday in Orono. The 7-acre facility is home to more than 2,500 plants and is open to the public from sunrise to sunset 365 days a year.
Computers aid comeback of co-ops
Portland Press Herald - 4/26/2010.
By Valerie Tucker – Farmington: Food co-ops never died. They just simmered on the back burner, waiting for a revival of the 1960s' and 1970s' enthusiasm for whole foods and healthy eating. Renewed awareness of the importance of safe, local food sources brought the movement out of quasi-retirement, but today's food co-op members have something their parents didn't: computers.
Farmer gives homeless chance to work
Kennebec Journal - 4/26/2010.
By Erin Rhoda – Madison: Gary Davis stood in the middle of a corral at Albertson's Quarter Horse Farm, the long reins in his hands connected to the horse's halter. The horse responded to his voice commands to walk or trot or stop. When Davis finished learning for the first time how to "ground drive" and stepped out of the gate, he was smiling. No one would know that Davis, 24, is currently homeless – that as a Marine he completed two tours in Iraq and now can't find a job.
