Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Minimize antibiotics
Bangor Daily News - 9/26/2009.
Editorial by BDN Staff – Although major food buyers, including national chain restaurants, have stopped buying meat from farms where antibiotics are routinely used or asked such farms to reduce their use, the routine administration of these drugs remains too widespread. Rather than leaving it up to individual companies, Congress should adopt a national policy to limit antibiotic use.
USDA gives grants to seven in Maine
Portland Press Herald - 9/24/2009.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded grants to seven projects in Maine that will strengthen local economies and help new and existing businesses and farmers, said the office of Rep. Mike Michaud. … The Presque Isle-based Aroostook Band of Micmacs ($31,739) and the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association of Unity ($68,450) received money to establish, expand and promote farmers markets and other direct producer-to-consumer marketing opportunities, according to a news release.
All-organic fair highlights best of Maine in many ways
Portland Press Herald - 9/23/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – The Common Ground Country Fair has come a long way since its humble beginnings in my hometown of Litchfield 33 years ago. What began as an alternative to traditional agricultural fairs has blossomed into a massive event celebrating Maine-grown organic food and community self-reliance. The fair has moved twice to accommodate the growing crowds, and last year, 60,000 people converged on the sleepy town of Unity to eat the fair's amazing food, watch cooking demos, shop at the farmers market, see live music, tour the animal exhibitions, explore folk art, connect with social and political causes and learn about renewable energy.
A better school menu
Bangor Daily News - 9/23/2009.
Editorial – Many schools will mark Maine harvest week by serving locally grown food for lunch. This is a great gesture, but it begs the question of where the food comes from during the rest of the year.
