"One hears a lot about the rules of good husbandry; there is only one — leave the land far better than you found it."
- George Henderson, The Farming Ladder

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Computers aid comeback of co-ops
Portland Press Herald - 4/26/2010.
By Valerie Tucker – Farmington: Food co-ops never died. They just simmered on the back burner, waiting for a revival of the 1960s' and 1970s' enthusiasm for whole foods and healthy eating. Renewed awareness of the importance of safe, local food sources brought the movement out of quasi-retirement, but today's food co-op members have something their parents didn't: computers.
Sow early: Many farmers betting warm weather is here to stay
Portland Press Herald - 4/25/2010.
By Beth Quimby – Cape Elizabeth: Normally, Bill Bamford plants peas at Maxwell Farm in Cape Elizabeth around mid-April. This year he put the peas in March 19 and the corn a week later, the earliest he has ever planted in his 35 years of farming. "It is a big gamble at this point, because the rule of thumb is you can get a frost almost to Memorial Day," said Bamford.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/25/2010.
By Tom Atwell – A couple of new events are designed to get you out looking at plants – and maybe even buying a few. The Maine Greenhouse and Nursery Day is being held Saturday at greenhouses and garden centers all across the state. It was created over coffee during the Maine Agriculture Show in Augusta in January.
Documentary opened eyes to nation’s food processing
Kennebec Journal - 4/25/2010.
Letter to editor by Brandi Wheeler – Now that summer is fast approaching, it is the season for fresh vegetables from our local farmers. I just watched the documentary "Food, Inc." based on Eric Schlosser's book, "Fast Food Nation" and Michael Pollan's, "The Omnivore's Dilemma," and had my eyes opened as to the way food is grown and processed in this country.
