Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Screen plant choices for invasive potential
Bangor Daily News - 10/31/2009.
By Reeser Manley – My favorite plant in Marjorie’s garden at the moment is a redvein enkianthus, Enkianthus campanulatus, planted 10 years ago and pruned to form a multitrunk small tree.
Don’t skimp on mustard in baked beans
Bangor Daily News - 10/31/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – As a child of southern New England, I owe my understanding of Maine baked beans to my Belfast-raised husband, who was taken aback when I served him baked pea beans early in our marriage.

In Washington County, the wonderful little Marifax, a nice flavorful all-brown bean, is a favorite and I love them, too.

By Janine Pineo – The lingonberries have fruit this year. I had just hauled an armload of trellis supports up to the gardening shed last weekend and happened to look down — way down — as I turned to walk back to the vegetable garden. Glistening like tiny red pearls among shiny evergreen leaves were lingonberries, more than I’d ever seen on the diminutive bushes.
Putting farm animal protection on the map, one state at a time
Alternet - 10/31/2009.
By Paul Shapiro – At the beginning of this decade, not a single state in the nation had an anti-cruelty law that explicitly prohibited any standard agribusiness practice, regardless of how much suffering the practice may cause. Today, seven states have banned and are phasing out some of the most extreme forms of farm animal confinement.
