Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Federal chemicals policy a gift that would keep on giving
Bangor Daily News - 12/4/2009.
Op-ed by Gail Carlson – Dear Santa, I know this is a busy time of year for you and most of your letters come from children rather than their parents, but I am compelled to write to you, because there is something I really want for Christmas – a healthy future for my family.
Community-focused enterprises seek home-grown financing
Portland Press Herald - 12/4/2009.
By Ann Kim – Portland: The Local Sprouts Cafe is meant to be a community-centric space. Foods grown and produced locally will be served up to members and customers. The space will be a real-world classroom for job skills and a venue for art and educational offerings. With that kind of approach, it made sense to look to the community for assistance. Organizers hope supporters will lend a good portion of the money they need to renovate the space in a former dormitory.
Organic Christmas trees in demand
Vermont Public Radio - 12/3/2009.
By Charlotte Albright – Christmas trees have been sprouting in roadside retail stands and "cut-your own" fields since Thanksgiving weekend. That's when Adam Parke was loading his organically grown evergreens onto tractor-trailers bound for New York City. Taking a hot tea break near the woodstove in his cozy Barton kitchen, he says he launched his export business in the mid 1990s, after he got out of dairy farming.
State targets toxics
Kennebec Journal - 12/3/2009.
By Glenn Adams – Augusta: Environmental officials in Maine and a dozen other states issued a statement Wednesday saying federal laws to protect the public from toxic chemicals are too weak and states instead are leading the way. The joint statement asks for changes in national laws so they will protect vulnerable populations by identifying and regulating the most troubling chemicals in consumer items and elsewhere.
