Organic Orcharding Workshop: Bud Grafting

Saturday, August 6

North Branch Farm, Monroe, Maine
Fee: $50 non-members; $45 Student/Apprentice; $35 members; Journeypersons free
Information

Bud grafting is a great way to start your own fruit trees as well as many ornamentals. "Budding" uses individual buds from this year’s new growth to graft onto rootstock already set in the nursery. The workshop will be taught by Seth Yentes at North Branch Farm. Seth grafts thousands of trees every year. All the major tree fruit species will be covered. MOFGA will supply the buds and the rootstock. Participants should bring their own knives as well as a bag lunch.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Blueberry Galette makes easier-than-pie dessert
Bangor Daily News - 8/24/2011.
By Sandy Oliver – Save some fresh wild Maine blueberries to use in this easier-than-pie dessert. Then save the dough recipe to use with peaches, apples and pears or any other fruit you feel like enjoying.
Teens help feed Mainers through summer farm jobs
Bangor Daily News - 8/24/2011.
By Heather Steeves – Rockport: It was a squash day. Every day this week likely will be a squash day for four teenagers working on a farm for the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. The land trust nonprofit is in its second year of its Teen Agriculture program, which grows new farmers on the old, conserved farm land, according to the programs coordinator, Heather Halsey. The program pays the young people to grow food from seed to harvest. The nonprofit then delivers all of the food to Good Shepard Food Bank.
Maine, Vermont growing wheat again
Portland Press Herald - 8/24/2011.
AP – Westfield, Vt.: Amber waves of grain are rippling again in parts of New England, once considered the region's bread basket. Vermont and Maine ceded that distinction to the Midwest in the 1800s, when the Erie Canal and intercontinental railroad made it easier to move grain long distances. But small farmers on the nation's coasts have begun planting wheat again as more people clamor for locally grown food.
ConAgra sued over ‘natural’ GMO cooking oils
Food Safety News - 8/24/2011.
By Michele Simon – If you use Wesson brand cooking oils, you may be able to join a class action against food giant ConAgra for deceptively marketing the products as natural. These days it's hard to walk down a supermarket aisle without bumping into a food product that claims to be "all-natural." If you've ever wondered how even some junk food products can claim this moniker the answer is simple if illogical: the Food and Drug Administration has not defined the term natural.
