Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Public market idea growing again
Portland Press Herald - 5/28/2009.
By Beth Quimby – The concept of a public market where people can shop and meet appears to be alive and well in Portland, even though several such places have come and gone over the years. After months of planning, the owners of the Public Market House, at 28 Monument Square, are moving ahead with an expansion that will include new shops and public eating areas. Construction is scheduled to begin within days. The owners say their businesses have grown every year since they moved three years ago from the former Portland Public Market, despite the sour economic climate.
Deadly salmonella: frozen food’s newest ingredient
Alternet - 5/28/2009.
By Jim Hightower – Out in Arizona, an old tombstone bears an epitaph for a young gunslinger: "I was expecting this/But not so soon." Gunslinging, of course, is a high-risk business. But today, some of us can expect to have the following marker on our graves: "Here lies a guy/Killed by a pot pie." America's pot-pie threat lurks in an ingredient that today's producers of frozen foods don't list on their packages: salmonella.
Wendell Berry and Community Farm Alliance protest NAIS in Kentucky
Organic Consumers - 5/27/2009.
By Stephen Bartlett – It is not everyday you get the opportunity to garner good free press while speaking out forcefully in a broad alliance against the follies of a hijacked department of the government, in this case the U.S. Department of Agriculture! But Friday, May 22 was just such a day for the Community Farm Alliance (CFA) and their allies in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.
Rhubarb – proving the big tang theory
Bangor Daily News - 5/27/2009.
By Emily Burnham – As it turns out, dear readers, you really, really, really love rhubarb. The homely-yet-handsome plant figures into a wealth of your recipes, many of which were submitted into the Bangor Daily News’ rhubarb recipe contest, which culminated with a taste-testing a week ago. Our judges included Bernadette Gaspar, co-owner of Frank’s Bake Shop in Bangor and herself a rhubarb fan; BDN photographer and amateur gourmand Kate Collins; and yours truly, who grew up eating her grandmother’s rhubarb pies and jams.
