New tool maps and grades ‘food deserts’ to lure supermarkets
Grist - 10/21/2010.
By Bonnie Azab Powell – Earlier this month, in a piece for our Feeding the Cities series, Stephanie Paige Ogburn explained how urban "food deserts," areas without grocery stores selling healthy food and fresh produce, came to be. For an area to be a true "food desert," it needs not only to be sans a full-service grocery store, but also populated primarily by low-income families that don't have cars or easy public-transit access to stores outside their neighborhood.

Portland Press Herald - 10/20/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Due to the death of a friend, Maine apple guru John Bunker will not be able to attend this Saturday's Great Maine Apple Day, an event he helped found.

"Thankfully John's got a lot of contemporaries now," said Andrew Marshall, who directs educational programs for the Maine Organic Gardeners and Farmers Association, where the event will be held.
