Sustainable agriculture doesn’t end at harvest. Efficient use of every crop component is an important part of sustainable production. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how you can get the most and the best out of an organic, pasture-raised pig, from slaughter to sausage, using every part but the squeal.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Food is the ultimate security need, new map shows
The Guardian [UK] - 8/31/2011.
By Damian Carrington – A new map of food security risk around the world is, in some ways, depressingly familiar. Sub-saharan Africa leaps out as the place where the most people fear for their next meal, while the rich world has more to fear from obesity. But there's plenty of salutary reminders and fascinating detail, like India's food problems and the vulnerability of Spain.
There’s nothing wrong with being a little corny
Bangor Daily News - 8/31/2011.
By Emily Burnham – Corn has gotten a bad rep in recent years, with all the negative press about high-fructose corn syrup. But the corn that comes in a can or from which sugar is extracted is almost another thing entirely from the sweet, crunchy, buttery corn that shows up at farm stands, markets and local food-friendly grocery stores.
Portland food co-op stays true to its roots in new home
Portland Press Herald - 8/30/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Portland: The Portland Food Co-op had roughly 15 members when it formed in 2006. Today, the buying club that provides local and organic food at discounted prices has 250 members – and a space in the city's East End to call its own. The co-op will host an open house at its new digs on Hampshire Street from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday. "Our goal now that we're here is to have more pickups and longer hours," said Michelle Smith, who serves as the co-op's communications coordinator.
Crops hit hard by Irene in Franklin, Oxford counties
Sun Journal - 8/30/2011.
By Betty Jespersen – Farmington: The damage from whipping wind and torrential rain brought into the state by Tropical Storm Irene Sunday is being felt by farmers, who woke up Monday to find ripening fruit blown to the ground, apple trees snapped off, and fields of hay and vegetables coated with silt left behind by receding flood waters.
