Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Snapshot: Mellow hogs
Kennebec Journal - 6/29/2010.
By Andy Molloy – Ben Slayton rubs the shoulders of a hog Sunday outside his Gardiner home. Slayton is raising pasture pork to sell at the butcher shop he operates in Wales.
Tater Tots aren’t vegetables: why do we feed our kids crap?
Alternet - 6/28/2010.
By Jill Richardson – After eating bagel dogs, tater tots and gloppy cheese sandwiches every day for a year, the brave teacher known as Mrs. Q shared what she learned on her blog Fed Up With Lunch: "The quality of school lunches has declined" since she was a kid and "the USDA guidelines are warped." Why are French fries and tater tots counted as vegetables, fruit jello cups and frozen juice bars counted as fruit, and so many grains required that schools have to serve combinations like rice with bread?
Waterfront feast helps keep kids from going hungry
Portland Press Herald - 6/28/2010.
By Dennis Hoey – Rockland: Robert Krajewski and Lynette Mosher, chef-owners of the Lily Bistro in Rockland, closed their restaurant on Sunday, drove south to Portland and set up a grill on the city's waterfront. Krajewski and Mosher served 400 meals consisting of Port Clyde lobster, sweet peas and gnocchi – all donated at their own expense.
Giant salmon will be first GM animal available for eating
London Sunday Telegraph - 6/27/2010.
By Louise Gray – Usually Atlantic salmon do not grow during the winter and take three years to fully mature. But by implanting genetic material from an eel-like species called ocean pout that grows all year round, US scientists have managed to make the fish grow to full size in 18 months.
