"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Why the world needs a renaissance of small farming
The Guardian [UK] - 9/19/2012.
By Colin Tudge – The deep trouble is the huge clash between morality, biological reality, and the present economy. Until and unless we bring the three into line, we are bound to be in trouble. More than that, we need to acknowledge that morality (what is good) and biological reality (what is necessary and possible) must lead, and the economy must be secondary.
Maine project promotes local food and local art in 2012
Bangor Daily News - 9/19/2012.
Community Supporting Arts promotes local art and local food by partnering 14 artists with 13 farms in and around central Maine through the 2012 growing season. The artists have been creating art inspired by farmers’ lives, work, landscapes, challenges and ideals since early spring.
Uncommon pies for Common Ground Fair
Portland Press Herald - 9/19/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Bennett Collins started creating the wood-fired Harvest Moon Pizza he'll sell at this weekend's Common Ground Country Fair last fall. That's when he sowed the organic garlic at his Broadwing Farm in Bremen that will be used in the sauce. During the winter, he spent time tracking down organic and Maine-grown ingredients, and more recently, he's been making sauces and dough.
