2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
'Cow power' turns manure, food waste into mighty electricity source
Kennebec Journal - 1/19/2013.
By Ben McCanna - Exeter: Every day in rural Penobscot County, a large dairy farm harnesses clean-burning gas from cow manure and food waste, and generates enough electricity to power 800 homes continuously. The process has the potential to earn the facility $800,000 a year. It also creates byproducts - animal bedding and a less-odorous fertilizer - that save the farm about $100,000 a year.
Maine closes more scallop fishing areas
Bangor Daily News - 1/19/2013.
By Bill Trotter - Ellsworth: Due to declines in the number of harvestable scallops, the Maine Department of Marine Resources has closed three more fishing areas along the coast. The areas are being closed “to protect against unusual damage and imminent depletion” of scallops in those areas,” according to DMR officials.
Misdirected efforts aren’t making Americans any healthier
Bangor Daily News - 1/18/2013.
OpEd by Dr. Philip Caper - A report released last September estimated that about 30 percent of what we as a nation spend on health care is spent on things that have little or no effect on curing illness or on improving our health - in other words, wasted.
Water grabbing to follow food speculation? Where are the checks and balances?
Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy - 1/18/2013.
