Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Greg Marley, mushroom man, seeks to heal fungus fears
Bangor Daily News - 7/24/2010.
By Emily Burnham – For the past 35 years, Greg Marley, 55, has been a devoted amateur mycologist, teaching interested people about the many mushroom species right in our backyards in Maine that are delicious to eat and may confer a number of health benefits.

Op-ed by Denis Thoet – About a month ago, I had the temerity to suggest that Maine Public Television question the use of the words "sustainable agriculture" when it accepts the sponsorship dollars of the Monsanto Corp. Monsanto's genetically modified seeds represent the opposite of sustainability.

By Keith Edwards – Augusta: City councilors appear to be seeking balance between concerns herbicides are putting residents’ health at risk and the need to prevent weeds from damaging sidewalks and other public areas.
Farmers find friends indeed
Portland Press Herald - 7/23/2010.
By Edward D.
