Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Good farming about real food, not products that resemble food
Kennebec Journal - 7/3/2009.
By Denis Thoet – OK, OK, I have an agenda. Since this column began a year ago, some have told me that I am informing people about farming, not lecturing or advancing an agenda. That is not really true. Farming is far too wide and broad a topic for me to do that.
Crops in crisis
Bangor Daily News - 7/2/2009.

The lack of sun and continued rain are causing crops to rot in the fields.

Russell Libby, of Mount Vernon, director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, raised concerns about the proposal.

Exception Magazine - 7/2/2009.
By Peter Linsley – Portland, Maine – 10 low-income Somali teens from Portland are taking part in a pilot training program in organic farm management. This past Monday they began their 3 month program through the Center for African Heritage by cleaning out an abandoned barn and house on Falmouth’s River Point property’s previously fertile farmland.
