"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

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.

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.”

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.
