Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine co-ops fill need financially and socially
Portland Press Herald - 2/22/2009.
By Ann S. Kim – These days, Local Sprouts – a fledgling Portland-based cooperative – is cooking up a regular stream of meals for its members and providing catering services for nonprofit organizations and others holding events. The people behind the cooperative envision a time when it will provide locally produced foods to more people, operate a community-supported cafe and provide a greater source of income to its worker-owners.

Derek Jones, 21, has been working at Robert Elwell’s farm in Unity since he was in high school and hopes to one day purchase and run it. Elwell, 87, is among Maine’s aging farmer demographic, while Jones is one of few young people interested in taking up the traditional way of life.
