|For a healthier planet, blessed are the local cheesemakers|
Portland Press Herald - 12/21/2014. By Christine Burns Rudalevige - As a turophile (hey, look it up!) planning out my holiday cheese plate, I recently read with consternation a report by a Washington, D.C., environmental research organization that found cheese to have the third largest carbon footprint among all sources of protein. It stands behind beef (No. 2) and lamb (No. 1).
|Farm Apprenticeships in 2015|
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 12/21/2014. Maine Coast Heritage Trust is excited to announce two 9-month long farm apprenticeships in 2015 at two farm preserves in Rockport, Maine. In the past, both properties hosted summer interns to assist with farm and outreach efforts. With the 2015 apprenticeships, the farms will be able to offer further training and a more holistic approach to farming to the new farmers than what a short summer internship could provide.
