Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine women finding success with organic, sustainable clothing lines
Bangor Daily News - 8/6/2012.
By Katie Day – Organic food has been a rising trend in the last few years, but now more and more clothing designers are jumping on the organic bandwagon. Brook DeLorme and Suzanne MacFadyen are Maine designers whose clothing companies, Brook There and Arrowhead Clothing, are using organic and sustainable materials to create clothing.
Vast majority of Americans have BPA in their bodies
Bangor Daily News - 8/6/2012.
By Laura Vandenberg – Many parents become aware of BPA when they start shopping for a new baby and are warned by friends to buy only bottles marked BPA-free. Yet what few people realize is that the vast majority of Americans have BPA in their bodies at any one time, and exposures continue to occur throughout the day, every day.
Farming without water
Grist - 8/6/2012.
By Brie Mazurek – David Little of Little Organic Farm has had to adapt to water scarcity in California’s Marin and Sonoma counties, where most farmers and ranchers rely on their own reservoirs, wells, and springs, making them particularly vulnerable in years with light rainfall. Through a technique known as dry farming, Little’s potatoes and squash receive no irrigation, getting all of their water from the soil.

By Andrew Frederick – Though once considered the province of the adventurous gastronomic, squid have found a place among the palate of Maine eaters, and Port Clyde Fresh Catch can barely keep up with demand.
