Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
How gardening can help build healthier, happier kids
The Washington Post - 7/18/2017.
By Shannon Brescher Shea - Admittedly, gardening with kids isn’t always idyllic. But even when it’s chaotic, it can be tremendously beneficial. Scientific research suggests that getting up close and personal with dirt can improve children’s mental and physical health.
More Than Bread: Sourdough As a Window Into The Microbiome
Maine Public Broadcasting - 7/18/2017.
By Marcus Woo - Benjamin Wolfe sticks his nose into a Ziploc bag and takes a whiff. "Ooh! That's actually kind of nice," he says. Inside the bag is a pungent, beige goop. It's a sourdough starter – a slurry of water, flour, yeasts and bacteria – from which loaves of delicious bread are born. And it's those microbes that have the attention of Wolfe, a microbiologist at Tufts University.
Maine Voices: Portland task force’s pesticide ordinance is full of loopholes
Portland Press Herald - 7/18/2017.
By Jody Spear - Anyone who has followed the Portland City Council task force deliberations on a pesticide ordinance over the last year has to have been encouraged by the strong showing at a June 21 hearing. Residents testifying in favor of the most protective regulations – namely, the provisos of an ordinance enacted by South Portland last year – outnumbered by 5 to 1 supporters of the chemical industry-friendly draft ordinance from the Portland task force.
‘Food Freedom’ Advocates Claim Victory in Maine
Civil Eats - 7/18/2017.
By Lela Nargi - Last month, Maine’s Governor Paul LePage signed into law a bill that gives municipalities the power to regulate direct farm-to-consumer sales within their own borders. It’s the third so-called “food freedom” bill – also often called “food sovereignty” bills – to successfully make its way into state law in the U.S.: the first one was signed in Wyoming in 2015, and the second in North Dakota this past April. A wide range of regulations can fall under the term food freedom, including cottage food laws that allow home cooks to sell their products to the public or donate rescued food without fear of liability. But food freedom proponents are hailing Maine’s new law as a groundbreaking win, and one they hope is emblematic of the future success of their movement.
