Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Cookbook develops with stress on local foods
Kennebec Journal - 7/25/2011.
By David Robinson – Carrabassett Valley: Al Keene first heard about a locavore at a seasonal dinner started three years ago by a chef in Carrabassett Valley. He remembers asking Chef Tony Rossi, who hosts the dinners at the Shipyard Brew Haus restaurant at Sugarloaf Inn, to repeat the foreign-sounding word, coined to describe people who eat locally produced food.
Open farms, food for thought
Portland Press Herald - 7/25/2011.
By Emma Bouthillette – Freeport: Animals from the song "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" came to life Sunday for children visiting Wolfe's Neck Farm during the 22nd annual Open Farm Day. Holding her 2-year-old son, Oliver, Jess Muise reached over a feeding trough to treat a sheep to a carrot. Muise said she takes any chance she gets to bring her son outside and introduce him to new things. Inside the barn at Wolfe's Neck Farm, Oliver met sheep, goats and week-old chicks up close.

Portland Press Herald - 7/25/2011.
The Washington Post – A giant underwater "dead zone" in the Chesapeake Bay is growing at an alarming rate because of unusually high nutrient pollution levels this year, according to Virginia and Maryland officials. They said the expanding area of oxygen-starved water is on track to become the bay's largest ever.

The researchers warn that the amount of the poisons stockpiled in the polar region is unknown and their release could "undermine global efforts to reduce environmental and human exposure to them."
