Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fresh food without the hassle
Kennebec Journal - 2/28/2011.
By Mechele Cooper – Hallowell – David Young liked the idea of eating fresh produce without the hassle of caring for a garden. He had heard from friends about community supported agriculture in which farms offer shares of their crops to members who pay in advance for the growing season.
BPA battle to gauge LePage’s clout
Kennebec Journal - 2/28/2011.
