"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."
- Albert Howard, The Soil and Health, 1947

Farm Fire
Mount Desert Islander - 10/4/2017.
The owners of the Naked Blueberry store on West Street in Bar Harbor lost their home in a fire at their farm Friday morning. The home was a total loss.
Local FARMS Act Will Make Farm to Fork Investments in American Communities
National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 10/4/2017.
Today, a bipartisan coalition led by principal bill authors Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Representatives Chellie Pingree (D-ME), Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), and Sean Maloney (D-NY), introduced the Local Food and Regional Market Supply Act (the “Local FARMS Act”) to catalyze the 2018 Farm Bill’s investment in programs and policies that spur economic development in rural and food producing communities nationwide.
New Farm Bill Proposal Will Create Local Jobs, Boost Midsize Farms’ Sales and Increase Access to Healthy Food
Union of Concerned Scientists - 10/4/2017.
By Ricardo Salvador - “Currently 15.6 million U.S. households lack adequate access to healthy food. At the same time, many small and midsize farmers struggle to secure a steady demand for their produce. The Local FARMS Act offers solutions to these problems by providing financial incentives and policy support for local food systems that can create jobs, establish reliable revenue streams for farmers and increase access to healthy and affordable food, especially for low-income Americans. Research shows that thriving local food systems can close the nutrition and health gaps along socioeconomic and racial lines while encouraging spending that keeps local dollars invested in local businesses. We look forward to working with Representative Pingree, Senator Brown and others to support our farmers, rural economies and healthy families.”
