Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New federal rule on seasonal work could imperil state’s apple industry
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack - Machias: A new U.S. Department of Labor rule concerning temporary agricultural workers could have an adverse impact on Maine’s apple industry, growers said last week. The H-2A program rule which will take effect March 15 requires growers to advertise locally for agricultural positions and increases wages for temporary agricultural workers to $10.50 an hour.

Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
By Judy Harrison – Bangor: Residents will be able to learn how they can support area farmers and eat better this year at meetings to be held around the state Sunday. Again this year, the Maine Council of Churches and the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association will sponsor farm fairs where people can learn about community sustainable agriculture.

So when New England Grows, the trade show for the horticulture industry held each winter in Boston, offered a lecture on ''The Scientific Underpinnings of Sustainability,'' I figured I could come away with some useful knowledge. What I didn't realize was that I was going to have to learn about the laws of thermodynamics, specifically the second law of thermodynamics, or the entropy law.
