Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Innovative program would establish funding for rural areas
Kennebec Journal - 1/9/2010.
By Susan M. Cover – Augusta: Strong, Rockport and the Unity region will participate in a pilot program encouraging residents to pledge 5 percent of their estates to local community development funds. Maine Rural Partners, the state's federally recognized rural development council, launched the new effort Friday in a State House Cabinet Room ceremony.

And now the Gates Foundation has finally named a new director of agricultural development: long-time biotech exec and investor Sam Dryden.
