Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Sustainable Practices in Place at 70% of U.S. Farms
Ag Clips - 4/23/2009.
Environmental Leader – Rabobank has released its sustainable agriculture survey that finds that nearly 70 percent of the U.S. farmers and ranchers have taken steps toward implementing sustainable agricultural practices.
Waterville market to open
Kennebec Journal - 4/23/2009.
Locally-grown vegetables and fruits, home-baked breads, fresh cheeses and meats will be offered when the Barrels Community Market opens June 21 at 74 Main St. It will be like the indoor market of years ago, when shelves were stocked with grains and baked goods, tools, crafts, utensils and home goods – and patrons exchanged ideas. The market is being launched by the Waterville Main Street Program.
Lawmakers Considering Tougher Regulations For Spraying Pesticides
Maine Public Broadcasting - 4/23/2009.
A legislative panel is weighing a number of proposals aimed at changing requirements on pesticide application. Some would impose new restrictions on aerial spraying, while others demand notification procedures for those living within a quarter-mile of a spraying area. Farmers who use the pesticides claim they are being unfairly targeted. But some activists say the rules don't go far enough.
A movement is growing: a look back at the last year in green(er) food
Huffington Post - 4/22/2009.

That we launched this blog one year ago today (with 20 Ways to Green Your Fork) is no coincidence – the team at Eat Well, along with a growing number of consumers, are concerned about how our food choices impact the environment. Social justice concerns, especially access to healthful foods, and labor rights, are at issue here too, as well as animal welfare and public health issues.
