MOFGA Bud Grafting Workshop

Join Seth Yentes for our Bud Grafting Workshop taught at North Branch Farm in Monroe, Maine, on August 9. In this workshop you will have an overview of grafting techniques, participate in a discussion of rootstock and fruit trees, and apply techniques learned about bud grafting, which can be applied to various fruit trees. Seth Yentes has been grafting for 14 years and grows thousands of fruit trees every year, including apples, pears, peaches, plums and many more. Registration on the MOFGA Store

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
We’ve simply run out of room to expand fishing
Treehugger - 12/8/2010.
By Matthew McDermott – Sorry to be the downer on the already depressing subject of overfishing, but a new study in the journal PLoS ONE just reinforces the notion that we're fishing the world's oceans at rates far in excess of what they can take.
A Seed Library Grows in the Hudson Valley
Civil Eats - 12/8/2010.
By Paula Crossfield – There is a lot of talk these days about the need for more new entrants willing to fill in when older farmers retire (the average age of farmers in this country is 57 years old). But there has not been much discussion about rebuilding the support system, from infrastructure to community, that will keep those young farmers on the land. The Hudson Valley Seed Library is an example of an effort that does both of these things.
Pickled kelp the latest sea food from local growers
Portland Press Herald - 12/8/2010.
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.
Rebuilding the food pyramid for 2010
Boston Globe - 12/8/2010.
By M.E. Malone – Five years ago, Greek-style yogurt wasn’t in the dairy case and acai was an obscure Amazon berry. That was 2005, the last time the United States revised the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and its visual emissary, the food pyramid. This month, the federal departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services will release the 2010 dietary guidelines, updated every five years since 1980.
