Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Trio of farmers markets get $28,000 to help low-income individuals afford locally grown food
Bangor Daily News - 6/25/2013.
By Nick McCrea - As a program that helps low-income Bangor-area residents afford locally grown meat and produce enters its second season, groups behind Community Supported Farmers Markets say they expect it to help local farmers and improve the health of the community.
Obama’s Climate Change Speech: What It Means for Farmers
Modern Farmer - 6/25/2013.
By Jesse Hirsch - This afternoon President Barack Obama gave a speech for the history books, unequivocally putting carbon pollution on notice. Leaving no room for doubters (“We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society!”), Obama outlined a major three-pronged initiative to attack climate change. Simply put: the U.S. must use less dirty energy, more clean energy, and everyone needs to stop wasting the energy we have.
Salt Water Farm Keeps Maine Food World Buzzing
Zester Daily - 6/25/2013.
By Sara Franklin - “Let me just finish up what I’m doing, and then I’m going to step outside and talk to you. Give me 30 seconds.” I had called Annemarie Ahearn on the phone on a recent Friday morning. She sounded breathless. Whirlwind. And who can blame her? Slightly more than a month ago, Salt Water Farm, Ahearn’s cooking school and food garden in Lincolnville, Maine, underwent a major growth spurt, opening a new venue at Union Hall in nearby Rockport, Maine.
Straw Farm Spring Sheep Drive
Portland Press Herald - 6/25/2013.
By Sharon Kitchens - The boat pulled away from the town dock with nine human passengers and a ram heading to an island in Penobscot Bay for Straw Farm’s Spring Sheep Drive. I’d begged a spot and waited weeks through weather delays to be part of this unique tradition. Names and backgrounds were exchanged as we settled into the short ride.
