Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Public market alive and thriving in Portland
Bangor Daily News - 11/26/2011.
By Robert F. Bukaty – Portland: When the Portland Public Market closed down in 2006, Kris Horton and a couple of other vendors couldn’t let the dream of an inner-city market die. “None of us really wanted to go and set up shop on our own, so it was either choosing to close or rebuild something in terms of what we believed in,” she said. What they believed in became the Public Market House, a small-scale community gathering place that houses seven vendors and a community kitchen at 28 Monument Square. An eighth vendor is moving in soon.
Can growing vegetables really save you money?
Bangor Daily News - 11/26/2011.
By Reeser Manley – Can I lower my food costs by growing vegetables in a home garden? This is a simple question with anything but a simple answer.

Treehugger - 11/24/2011.
Jaymi Heimbuch – You're likely already aware of how terrible factory farming is for the animals raised in the facilities. From beef to chickens, pigs to turkeys, the conditions are awful and the animals have anything but a natural upbringing. However, as most of us prepare to sit down to a giant cooked bird tomorrow, we may wonder exactly how a factory farmed turkey differs from heritage turkeys raised humanely.
Seeds of evil
The Portland Phoenix - 11/23/2011.
By Deirdre Fulton – A Maine farmer, backed by 275,0000 like-minded individuals, has found himself at the forefront of a fight against the most dastardly figure in agriculture: the seed and biotechnology company Monsanto, which to some represents everything that is wrong with farming today. Aroostook County potato farmer Jim Gerritsen, recently chosen as one of "25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World in 2011" by the Utne Reader, is a local David going after an international Goliath.
