Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Vermont blasts McDonald’s for violating strict maple syrup law
The Atlantic - 1/13/2011.
By Daniel Fromson – The Vermont Agency of Agriculture is apparently no slouch when it comes to keeping its maple syrup safe from imitators. Slashfood reports that the VAA is going after McDonald's for marketing a new product called Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, which contains no real maple products of any sort.
Cool food, cool fuel, cool climate
Energy Bulletin - 1/13/2011.
By Albert Bates – "Painting the choice as a harsh dichotomy between your current standard of living and something resembling that of a prisoner on Devil’s Island is a blown meme. Stick a fork in that. The future will be one of more conscientious design: more food with net carbon and fertility soil gains; warmth, light, mobility and other energy services based on solar income, not distilled dinosaurs."

Portland Press Herald - 1/13/2011.
Op-ed by Davis Taylor – Orono: From beef producers in Mars Hill to a teller's window in Sanford, cooperatives are feeling like there is no better time to promote their values and activities. With notable investor-owned corporations such as British Petroleum, Goldman Sachs, and General Motors in the media spotlight on account of various woes and transgressions, the cooperative idea of "business rooted in community" seems particularly timely.
