2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine dairy industry continues to struggle as Garelick Farms in Bangor begins last production day
Bangor Daily News - 1/17/2013.
By Whit Richardson - Augusta: Friday will be the last day of production at the Garelick Farms milk processing plant in Bangor, bringing to an end 110 years of local dairy production. And the situation Maine’s dairy industry finds itself in, and which likely led to Garelick’s closure, are not improving, according to the Maine Milk Commission, which met Thursday.
Maine board backs ban on BPA in baby-food packaging
Portland Press Herald - 1/17/2013.
By Michael Shepherd - Maine's Board of Environmental Protection took a preliminary vote Thursday to ban sales of baby food and infant formula in containers made with the chemical additive bisphenol-A. If approved in a final vote and adopted by the Legislature, the initiative will make Maine the third state to impose BPA bans that exceed federal standards.
Worms Produce Another Kind of Gold for Farmers
Mercola.com - 1/17/2013.
By Dr. Joseph Mercola - A small but growing group of farmers are tending not to corn or cattle, but to worms. These intriguing creatures’ digestive process naturally excretes beneficial microbes into the soil, which drastically alter the soil’s composition.
Despite Heavy Rains, Drought Persists
Weather Underground - 1/17/2013.
By Andrew Freedman - The economic impacts of this drought have been staggering. The drought of 2011-12, which is still ongoing, is comparable in size to severe droughts that occurred in the 1950s, and is already being blamed for more than $35 billion in crop losses alone, according to the reinsurance company Aon Benfield. Others estimate that the total cost could exceed $100 billion, making this event rival Hurricane Sandy for the most expensive natural disaster of 2012.
