Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Preserving Maine farms: Program links those wanting to get into farming with those looking to get out
Kennebec Journal - 11/29/2009.
By Craig Crosby – Eric and Libby Healy's dream of owning a farm came true five years ago when they turned the corner of the old farmhouse in Thorndike and saw the rolling 40 acres of field surrounded by woods. "I still remember the look on my husband's face of just, we're home," Libby Healy said. "We found it." The Healy's were one of the first people to find a farm through Maine Farmland Trust's Farmlink program, which has connected 50 would-be farmers with existing farmers looking to get out of the business.
Farmers Market still selling food in Skowhegan
Kennebec Journal - 11/29/2009.
Letter to the editor by Lisa Veilleux – I wanted to write a public letter of thanks to the wonderful Skowhegan Farmers Market this summer. It was very exciting to have so many new farmers, artisan bakers and cheesemakers joining our local food venue. It is outstanding that for over 10 years, our farmers have shown their dedication to providing us with locally grown foods.
Wool for warmth – and the planet
Maine Sunday Telegram - 11/29/2009.
By Beth Quimby – Kennebunk: It was sheep breeding time at Ramblers Way Farm off Route 35, and Isaac the ram appeared to be in his element. Surrounded by a dozen ewes, the curly-horned beast gobbled up the grain hand-fed to him by Dave Norman, the farm's manager. Isaac is one of the farm's flock of 60 Rambouillet sheep, carefully coddled to produce organic wool that will eventually become Ramblers Way woolen underwear.
Feeding a growing interest among students
Maine Sunday Telegram - 11/29/2009.
By Tom Atwell – A group of grade 3-5 students is creating a natural habitat – and a pretty nice garden – at Skillin School in South Portland. Anne Cyr, a first-grade teacher at the school, has been working on the creation of the Skillin School Learning Garden Project since 2005 and has been directing a garden club of students in grades 3-5 since 2007. The garden so far includes a walking path, a bird and butterfly garden, an herb garden and a perennial garden. On the agenda for next year is a wetlands garden.
