Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
When it comes to food, how does your lawmaker stack up?
Grist - 10/24/2012.
By Tom Laskawy – Will the food movement ever really turn political? Today – on Food Day – we’re seeing signs that the food movement may in fact be starting to grow up. And like learning how to balance a checkbook or making sure bills get paid on time, some of the most crucial rites of passage can seem more like chores than privileges.
Woman stocks pantries with Maine-made treats through ‘kitchen share’
Bangor Daily News - 10/23/2012.
By Emily Burnham – Bangor: Two years into it, and Cheryl Wixson’s test kitchen is cranking out so many jams, pickles, sauces, dressings and other preserved treats that she can hardly keep up. Pumpkin butter one week. A garden fresh salsa the next. Cranberry ketchup. Marinara sauce. Zucchini relish. Cheryl Wixson’s Kitchen, currently based in Bangor, offers its many products in a six-month-long “kitchen share.”
Pie social honors long-time MOFGA director
Portland Press Herald - 10/23/2012.
Posted by Avery Yale Kamila – Since 1995, Russell Libby has been the face of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, working with farmers, building coalitions among food producers and lobbying lawmakers in Augusta and Washington, DC. Last week came the news that he was stepping down from the position of executive director and transitioning into the role of senior policy advisor. In recent years, Libby has been battling cancer. To honor Libby's years of service to the organization, MOFGA hosts a pie social in his honor Nov. 1 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Common Ground Education Center in Unity.
Farms being left without safety net
Kennebec Journal - 10/23/2012.
Editorial – For half a century, a bipartisan bargain on agricultural policy worked well to balance the needs of urban and rural areas. But we now live in an era where nothing seems to work. Congress left for its recess without passing a farm bill. As a result, many programs have expired, including the Milk Income Loss Contract, landing a blow to Maine's 300 dairy farms, all of which are family owned.
