Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Eating local foods first and foremost simply a matter of taste
Portland Press Herald - 8/26/2009.
By Anne Mahle – I was asked this week if eating locally, organically and/or seasonally (all interconnected but not quite the same) was more about the consciousness of the buying decisions or about taste for me. And certainly the decision is easy, because we can have it all – healthy choices for us, the environment and our local economy, and fabulous flavor. But if I had to choose one, taste would win.
The promise and limits of local food
Boston Globe - 8/26/2009.
Op-Ed By Brian Donahue – Eating local is all the rage. As someone who dropped out to become a community farmer in the 1970s, and still farms, I am delighted. As someone who later dropped back into academia to become an environmental historian, I have my doubts about how much we can grow in New England. Watching some of my best students head down the same path, I feel I owe their parents an explanation.
Developer eyes Milo site for greenhouses
Bangor Daily News - 8/25/2009.
By Diana Bowley – If a developer has his way, fresh organic vegetables, flowers and shrubs sold wholesale in central and northern New England would be grown in Milo. Brian Grosse of the Boston area, who purchased the vacant Ox Yoke buildings in 2006, wants to use a small portion of the main mill building for an office and build greenhouses behind the building using the six 30-by-200-foot foundations left behind by the earlier American Thread Co. operation.
Bee Genome Study Reveals Cause of Colony Collapse Disorder
Environmental News Service - 8/25/2009.
Researchers have found a reliable marker of colony collapse disorder, a mysterious malady that in 2007-2008 killed off more than a third of commercial honey bees in the United States.
