Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Advance payment system helps all
Kennebec Journal - 2/26/2012.
By David Robinson – Waterville: Garrett Glidden recently grew enough potatoes in his small garden to make it through the winter for the first time, stashing the spuds in a shed at his Fairfield home. When he went to check on his stockpile and found rotting potatoes, however, it quickly became clear he needed expert advice.
Food prices are rising, packages are shrinking, budgets are stretching thin
Kennebec Journal - 2/26/2012.
Op-ed by Liz Soares – OK, my pizza would be more nutritious, and would go farther. Since my dish would last at least two meals, the total cost per pie would be more like $11. Still, I was shocked that one of my time-honored methods for saving money on food was suddenly on shaky ground.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/26/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Maine's backyard gardeners mostly deal with perennial plants. They are generally both easier and less expensive than annuals. You plant them once, and they come back every year.

That's made it hard for producers of organic foods from overseas to get recognized for their sustainable practices and charge accordingly. But a landmark agreement between officials in the U.S. and European Union will allow European organic certification to be marketed with impunity in the United States, and vice versa.
