"The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Community kitchens learn from Belfast’s Coastal Farms and Foods collapse
Bangor Daily News - 10/12/2015.
By Abigail Curtis - Belfast: A couple of weeks ago, when Yvonne Chick of Orland had her two hogs slaughtered, she wasn’t looking forward to the big, messy task of processing the meat in her own kitchen.

The kitchen, licensed and built to commercial standards, is intended to be an incubator for small, value-added businesses and a community resource for other types of cooking projects, such as Chick’s hog processing ordeal.
