Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
LePage looks to merge state’s Conservation, Agriculture departments
Bangor Daily News - 9/30/2011.
By Christopher Cousins – Augusta: Gov. Paul LePage announced Thursday that he wants to merge the Departments of Conservation and Agriculture in an effort to better serve the farming, conservation and forestry sectors and enrich the economy.
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.

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.
