Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Another summer, another food crisis?
Common Dreams - 3/16/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – Corn prices peaked during the run up to the 2008 economic crisis at $7.88 per bushel and as the prices of corn and other commodities rose we saw food riots worldwide. Commodity prices soon came back the earth – corn is currently trading at about $4 a barrel. Given that we’re in the middle of an anemic recovery, you’d think spiking food prices are thankfully the last thing we have to worry about.

By Ray Routhier – Portland: When Conrad Lausier first uttered the words "watch yourself" to me, I thought he was being a little overly cautious. I mean, he was taking me through the B&M Baked Beans factory on the edge of Casco Bay in Portland. How dangerous could baking beans be? But within minutes, I saw a 900-pound bean pot, full of freshly baked beans, flying toward me. Literally.
Maple syrup tradition continues
Kennebec Journal - 3/15/2010.
