Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
No one hurt in barn burner
Kennebec Journal - 12/16/2009.
By Matthew Stone – Mount Vernon: An early-morning fire Wednesday destroyed much of a barn housing horses, hay and farm equipment. While no humans or animals were hurt, battling the blaze took up most of a frigid day for firefighters from eight towns. Firefighters shut down much of North Road as they responded to the fire, which broke out at approximately 4:20 a.m. on a farm owned by Richard Hall.
Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free … local caterers answer the call
Portland Press Herald - 12/16/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Gone are the days when health-conscious party planners had to worry about whether the event's caterer knew how to maintain a gluten-free kitchen or spot the myriad foods in which non-vegetarian ingredients lurk. Now local hosts and hostesses have the luxury of hiring an expert. Responding to the growing ranks of people with food allergies, special dietary preferences and interest in locally sourced foods, a new crop of caterers is cooking up an interesting and diverse array of edibles.
Maine has to do more to prevent toxic products from harming kids
Portland Press Herald - 12/15/2009.
By Paul Liebow – Bucksport: Congratulations to Maine for again leading the nation in a rational approach to preventing toxic chemicals' effects on our children, especially babies. Special concerns are phthalates and BPA in everything from IVs in newborn nurseries to toys and baby food packaging. Evidence mounts daily suggesting damage to animal embryos and now to human fetal development. A public hearing on the next steps implementing Maine's "Kid-Safe Products Act" is being held on Thursday at the Augusta Civic Center.
Waterville to vote on regulating chickens in residential areas
Kennebec Journal - 12/15/2009.
By Amy Calder – Waterville: Chickens will be free to cluck on city lawns if councilors vote to allow it. The council, which meets at 7 tonight, will consider letting people in the residential zone house up to six chickens per household, as long as they abide by certain restrictions. For example, the birds must be hens. No crowing roosters would be allowed.
