Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Cleanup of Gulf of Maine will require 5 years, $3 billion
Portland Press Herald - 12/9/2010.
AP – Portland: At least $3 billion is needed over five years to restore the environmental health of the Gulf of Maine, according to a new report described as the most comprehensive ecological needs assessment ever done for the gulf.
Forget summer: why Maine is a year-round culinary hotbed
Huffington Post - 12/9/2010.
By Marie Elena Martinez – The state of Maine has long been considered a summer destination. Portland author Michael Sanders and photographer Russell French refute that theory by transporting readers from an old post road inn in Kittery to a renovated textile mill in rough and tumble Lewiston and a sleek Scandinavian-design bistro in blue-collar Bath.

By Avery Yale Kamila – After garnering rave reviews at this fall's 20 Mile Meal and Harvest on the Harbor foodie events, Dilly Kelp Pickles can now be found in the refrigerated sections of local stores. The newest product from Portland-based Ocean Approved features the company's kelp noodles in a dill-infused vinegar brine.
