Beautiful Bowls, Savory Soup, Art, Music and Friends

MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee Empty Bowl Supper

With music by Happytown and hands-on pottery demo by Russell Kahn

The April 30 Empty Bowl Supper in Belfast, a benefit for the MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee's work, promises to be better than ever this year, with a celebration of 15 years of sistering and solidarity and with a chance to try your hand at making a clay pot.

The Sistering Committee, part of MOFGA, holds this fundraiser annually, thanks to the generosity of the Unitarian Universalist Church, which donates the space; to many Maine potters who donate their beautiful bowls; to the Back 40 Bakehouse, which donates bread; and to the Belfast Co-op Store, which donates drinks, butter and more.

Participants get to buy one of these handsome bowls and fill it with soup made by Cheryl Wixson of Cheryl Wixson's Kitchen and featuring Maine organic ingredients from MOFGA-certified organic Happytown Farm and Rabbit Hill Farm – all for just $15 ($35 maximum for families).

LePage looks to merge state’s Conservation, Agriculture departments

Officials: merger of departments worthwhile idea
Kennebec Journal - 9/30/2011.
By Rebekah Metzler – Augusta: Gov. Paul LePage aims to merge the Departments of Agriculture and Conservation, but his goal is a more "robust natural resource economy," not a budget savings. "The key fact is that we're not out to destroy anything, it's just the other way around. If it was a part of a budget-reduction discussion, then I would be firmly planted on the other side," said Walter Whitcomb, commissioner of the Department of Agriculture, in an interview.
USDA offers help to beginning farmers. Will it be enough?
Grist - 9/30/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – Back in the heady days of our youth when anything seemed possible – you know, 2009 – USDA Chief Tom Vilsack called for 100,000 new farmers. He even followed it up the next year with $17 million dollars in grants for the Beginning Farmers and Ranchers Training Program designed to help educate and mentor young farmers and ranchers.
LePage proposes merging Maine Conservation and Agriculture departments
Maine Public Broadcasting - 9/29/2011.
By Susan Sharon – Gov. Paul LePage today announced a plan that would merge the Maine Department of Conservation with the Agriculture Department. It's an idea that has been proposed and rejected by the Maine Legislature before. The governor says the move would strengthen Maine's natural resource-based economy. But there is concern that it could shift priorities.
