Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Study: Harmful additives found in canned food
Bangor Daily News - 5/20/2010.
By Meg Haskell – Environmental health advocates in Maine released a new national study earlier this week showing that canned foods and beverages absorb potentially dangerous amounts of bisphenol A, or BPA, from the cans’ epoxy lining.
Spring crops up with a bounty of its own
Portland Press Herald - 5/19/2010.
By Anne Mahle – Spring is a time when many of us are dreaming of those big beautiful tomatoes we are hoping will arrive in mid- to late August.

Portland Press Herald - 5/19/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Portland: Now entering its third year, the popular Food + Farm film festival and local food celebration kicks off Thursday and runs through Sunday. It will showcase four feature-length documentaries, screen four Maine-produced shorts and offer a chance to get your hands dirty on an urban farm.
