Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Buy-local campaigns taking root
Kennebec Journal - 5/30/2010.
Dani Nisbet has a very simple explanation for why she helped form a “buy local” group in South Portland this year. When she shops at a chain store, she said, a big chunk of her money goes elsewhere.

Earlier this month, a drastically smaller harvest of the fish from the Sebasticook River seemed to point to a short and less successful venture this year for fishermen and the town of Benton. With warmer water temperatures, however, has come a surge in alewives at the Benton Falls Hydro Dam that has led to a modest, if late, boost.
