Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
USM backs compost work
Kennebec Journal - 4/22/2009.
By John Richardson – Greg Williams and Brett Richardson thought they would put their nearly completed graduate degrees to work in planning or policy careers. Instead, they're jumping into the waste disposal business. Williams and Richardson, students at the University of Southern Maine's Muskie School of Public Service, plan to turn food waste from Portland's restaurants and other institutions into organic compost for lawns and gardens.
A wide-ranging lineup for upcoming Food + Farm
Portland Press Herald - 4/22/2009.
By Meredith Goad – This year's Food + Farm event at Space Gallery features four days of enlightening discussions about sustainable food, a preview of an important new film, and lots of hands-on workshops focusing on urban and small-space food production. Well-known Stonington lobsterman and McArthur "genius grant" recipient Ted Ames kicks off the event with an overview of his research on Gulf of Maine fisheries populations at 7:30 p.m. May 7 at Space, 538 Congress St., Portland.

Portland Press Herald - 4/22/2009.
By Anne Mahle – It always surprises me, when I learn to make something in my kitchen or grow something in my garden that I could buy in a package at the grocery store, how different the flavors, colors and textures can be.

I'm not willing anymore to accept the lifeless taste of food long out of the ground and far removed from its place of birth.
Fresh food revolution
Common Dreams - 4/21/2009.
By Mark Hertsgaard, The Nation – When Michelle Obama began planting an organic garden on the South Lawn of the White House recently, there was no doubt she was sending a message, but the message was more subversive and far-reaching than most American media coverage recognized. ... What made Obama's message so subversive was something she left unsaid: the food most Americans eat nowadays is not fresh, tasty or healthy.
