Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Extending the gardening season
The Free Press - 11/27/2009.
By Georgeanne Davis – I love Edith Piaf's "Non, Je ne regrette rien," and hope some year I'll be singing that tune as I look at the garden season just past. But not this year. With very heavy frost now setting in most mornings, I have good reason to regret not putting more fall garden plots in under cover.
York River farm parcel saved from development
Portland Press Herald - 11/27/2009.
By Beth Quimby – A 1600s-era farm along the York River has been saved from development and added to a swath of protected land between Mount Agamenticus and the ocean. The York Land Trust and Mount Agamenticus to the Sea bought the ecologically significant 240-acre parcel from the Davis family, whose ancestors, the McIntires, settled on the land in the 1600s as one of the town's founding families.
Rockport café sees holiday as way to connect
Bangor Daily News - 11/27/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Rockport: A stream of hungry people poured into the new Farmers Fare cafe and marketplace Thursday afternoon to enjoy a free community “Feastival.” “It’s been amazing,” said Teri Thompson-Christie, who co-founded the marketplace and cafe with her husband, Peter Christie. “It’s awesome. Look at all the food – and so many people.”
Giving thanks for America’s good food movement
Common Dreams - 11/25/2009.
By Jim Hightower – What better day than Thanksgiving to celebrate our country's food rebels! I'm talking about the growing movement of small farmers, food artisans, local retailers, co-ops, community organizers, restaurateurs, environmentalists, consumers and others – perhaps including you. This movement has spread the rich ideas of sustainability, organic, local control and the Common Good from the fringes of our food economy into the mainstream.
