"One hears a lot about the rules of good husbandry; there is only one — leave the land far better than you found it."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Environment needs our vigilance
Portland Press Herald - 4/16/2011.
Letter to the editor by John Krueger – For many, it has been an upsetting several months of watching environmental rollbacks being supported by large corporations and our elected leaders, often with great disrespect to those who seek a healthy environment. I wonder how many are now aware that the (LePage) administration is seeking through its agricultural legislative committees to roll back regulations on pesticide notifications, and to restrict new efforts to prevent cosmetic use of pesticide applications on children's school grounds.
Here comes the sun: costs, rebates making solar affordable
Bangor Daily News - 4/16/2011.
By Matt Wickenheiser – Twenty thousand cars pass through the intersection of Wilson and State streets in Brewer daily, and if the motorists look up a bit, they can see the new solar panel array on the roof of the Supercuts salon. The site has great solar orientation, and was built with an angled roof so everyone can see the panels as they drive by.
It’s open season again on pesticide laws in Augusta
Bangor Daily News - 4/14/2011.
Op-Ed by Heather Spalding – If the Legislature’s Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry members consider five pesticide bills carefully enough, they will realize that healthy people, a healthy environment and a healthy economy go hand in hand in hand.
Deal spares farmland
Kennebec Journal - 4/13/2011.
By Mechele Cooper – Kents Hill: It takes a community to save a farm. Case in point: Kents Hill Orchard. Purchased in 2009 by the Maine Farmland Trust, the 84-acre orchard is being sold to Belle Vue Farm LLC owners Brian and Lee Ann Baggott, of Manchester, the Trust announced Tuesday. Brian Baggott said the orchard will become a vegetable farm where he will grow zucchini, squash and cucumbers.
