Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
With food-system reform slowed to a crawl, local initiatives come to fore
Grist - 1/24/2011.
By Tom Philpott – I think we have seen the scope of the Obama administration's commitment to food-policy reform: things that don't cost real money or challenge the structure of the food industry. I'm thinking of the USDA's Know Your Farmer initiative, which doesn't bring new money to the table, but rather packages existing outlays in a way that supports sustainable agriculture.
Coalition looking to fill more Mainers’ plates
Portland Press Herald - 1/24/2011.
By John Richardson – Six nonprofits are teaming up to expand food supplies to hungry Mainers and reverse the rise in the rate of people struggling to feed their families.

They also plan to push for statewide policies and legislation to reduce hunger and the poverty that causes it.

Common Dreams - 1/24/2011.
By Michael T. Klare – Get ready for a rocky year.

Her physician, Dr. Michael Lambke, examined Quattrone and the fetus. And he talked about vegetables. They weren't just any vegetables, but free ones from the Skowhegan Farmers' Market.
