Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers, foresters wary about single agency
Kennebec Journal - 6/27/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Augusta: Fred Hardy, a retired dairy farmer from New Sharon, said he's been opposed to merging the state departments of agriculture and conservation from the get-go. "My biggest concern … is that agriculture will lose its identity," Hardy said. "My suggestion is to have one department for agriculture and one department" for conservation and forestry.
Lessons learned from the scrimpers and savers
Portland Press Herald - 6/27/2012.
By Anne Mahle – I wonder sometimes about how it was during the Depression and the lengths to which people went to save and conserve – in the kitchen and out. My dad is the product of parents from that time, and he saves rubber bands, plastic bags, aluminum foil, pieces of wood, bits of string – the list goes on.
Extra pesto boosts green lasagna flavor
Bangor Daily News - 6/27/2012.
By Sandy Oliver – Lots of spinach and arugula on hand in my garden hoop house out behind the barn moved my green lasagna project into high gear recently. I’d thought about making it for a long time and never seemed to get to it. Now I prefer it over the classic red sauce lasagna, partly because I like garlic and pesto.
Schools in transition: mapping watersheds
Transition Network - 6/27/2012.
Isabel Carlisle – How connected to your local place do you feel? Do you know where the nearest flow of water is? —I don't mean down the drain! If you live in a city you may not be aware that streams are still flowing under the pavements. If you stand in the right place and listen, you can even hear them.
