Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Meet the authors of a new study on BPA levels in humans and the link to food packaging
MOFGA Announcements - 3/30/2011.
Video from The Breast Cancer Fund. Watch as the authors of our food packaging and BPA study explain what BPA is, why we're concerned about it and how eliminating canned and packaged foods from five families' diets lowered their BPA levels in just three days.
Agriculture patterns photographed from space
The Telegraph (UK) - 3/30/2011.
These images may look like examples of modern art, but they are pictures taken from space, showing how man has transformed the geography of our planet. They highlight how dramatically we have reshaped the natural world for our agricultural purposes. The pictures were captured from hundreds of miles above the Earth by astronauts on the International Space Station, as well as various satellites.
Child-safety product proposals spur debate
Kennebec Journal - 3/30/2011.
by Rebekah Metzler. More than 50 people turned out on Tuesday to testify about a pair of bills before the Legislature aimed at narrowing Maine's Kids Safe Product Act, which developed a process to identify and ban dangerous chemicals that children come in contact with.
The art of making traditional Maine chowder
Bangor Daily News - 3/29/2011.
by Sandy Oliver. A rich, flavorful, thick-with-ingredients chowder is a Mainer’s birthright, or at least ought to be. I am convinced that in all likelihood, chowder was the first dish concocted in Maine by non-natives, very likely by the same European fishermen who brought codfish caught and salted on the Grand Banks ashore to dry in Maine fishing stations along the coast. I’ll bet anything that they were not roasting beef and baking apple pie.
