2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Anson third-graders grow fruits, vegetables, more aware
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 9/23/2012.
By Rachel Ohm – Anson: Parents and children sat down to a harvest dinner on a recent night to enjoy food prepared from the first crop of a new garden cultivated by third-graders. The Garrett Schenck Elementary School, like many schools across the nation, is making it a priority to teach students where food comes from and encourage healthy eating.
Food for thought at U Maine-Augusta convocation
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 9/22/2012.
By Susan McMillan – Augusta: University of Maine at Augusta professor Lisa Botshon sees a lot of potential for discussing food in an academic setting. For instance, in the women's studies courses she'll teach this year, Botshon and her students will talk about eating disorders, breastfeeding and the role of food in different cultures.
Sharing common ground: Know your organic farmer
Bangor Daily News - 9/22/2012.
Editorial – For all that organic farmers do for the state, more Mainers should be buying their products by the bucketload. And to ensure that they not only survive but thrive, organic farmers will need to expand and diversify their markets.
How one Skowhegan woman is driving a local foods revolution
Bangor Daily News - 9/21/2012.
By Erin Rhoda – Sarah Smith, 31, is one of the stars of Maine’s organic farming sector. It’s not just because she and her husband Garin brought renewed life to her father’s dairy farm in Skowhegan or because she works at all hours of the day while raising three children, ages 6, 3 and 11 months. It’s because she’s helping to change how her community thinks about organic food by generating more connections between customers and farmers.
