"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

MOFGA's Farm Training Project Workshops
Weekly, June through September
at farm locations throughout Maine
Free


Designed to augment the on-farm learning of the farm apprenticeship program, MOFGA's Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops follow an informal format, usually beginning with a farm tour followed by a presentation on the topic of the day. Participants are invited to stay for a potluck supper – bring a dish or something fresh from the farm to share (please bring your own place setting as well). All events are held rain or shine and are free and open to the public. For more information or directions to any of the workshops, call 568-6018, email education@mofga.org, or check the FTP website.

No yolk: Food-tech startup works to replace eggs
The Seattle Times - 12/8/2013.

Straight ahead, Unity to Belfast
Maine Sunday Telegram - 12/8/2013.
By Deirdre Fleming - From any road you take into this rural Waldo County town, you pass farms.

Today's USDA Meat Safety Chief Is Tomorrow's Agribiz Consultant
Mother Jones - 12/7/2013.
By Tom Philpott - Deloitte Touche is one of the globe's "big four" auditing and consulting firms. It's a player in the Big Food/Ag space—Deloitte's clients include "75% of the Fortune 500 food production companies." The firm's US subsidiary, Deloitte & Touche LLP, has a shiny new asset to dangle before its agribusiness clients: It has hired the US Department of Agriculture's Undersecretary for Food Safety, Elisabeth Hagen. She will "join Deloitte's consumer products practice as a food safety senior advisor," the firm stated in a press release.
'Rank Hypocrisy': WTO Deal Bows to Wealth, Squashes the Poor
Common Dreams - 12/7/2013.
By Jon Queally - In announcing a final agreement in Bali, Indonesia on Saturday morning, head of the World Trade Organization Roberto Azevedo, said: "For the first time in our history, the WTO has truly delivered." Unfortunately, say critics, what the deal is certain to "deliver" is more pain and suffering for the world's poorest people and farmers at the expense of the world's largest and most powerful nations and corporations.
