Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A critical mass for real food
Yes! - 8/6/2012.
By Anim Steel – A doorway in West Africa's Elmina Fort is a Door of No Return. It is the last part of Africa you would touch if you were a slave being led from the dungeon to a waiting ship. I stood in front of this door a few years ago while visiting my family in Ghana. This door represents many things. It represents our capacity for cruelty – as well as resilience. It also represents the beginning of our modern food system.
Trimming, weeding, cutting – getting ready for the Backyard Locavore Tour
Maine Sunday Telegram - 8/5/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Our garden is part of the of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Backyard Locavore Day next weekend – Saturday if it doesn't rain hard; Aug. 12 if it does.

The New York Times - 8/4/2012.
By Katherine Q. Seelye – The problem in Maine is that most of its major roads run north-south. Very few run east-west, which makes traversing the state one long, slow slog. Peter Vigue, the chairman and chief executive of the Cianbro Corporation, a large engineering and construction company based in Maine, is hoping to change that. He has proposed a $2 billion private toll road running 220 miles across the state.

By Natalie Bazinet, Aroostook Republican & News – If Aroostook potato farmers had to ship every spud 400 miles to get a necessary pre-sale stamp of approval, there’d probably be a lot less growers in the region. In order for cattle farmers to be able to sell their product to grocery chains, such as Hannaford, they have to first get that United States Department of Agriculture stamp on every side of beef — which means trucking the steer hundreds of miles south.
