Earth day at 40: Mainers remember birth of a movement
Portland Press Herald - 4/20/2010.
By Beth Quimby – When the first Earth Day was celebrated, 40 years ago Thursday, Maine was on the cutting edge of the environmental movement. U.S. Sen. Edmund Muskie was leading the charge to enact the federal Clean Water Act, which would lead to the rebirth of polluted waterways. A generation of back-to-the-landers was following the footsteps of Helen and Scott Nearing. The College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, an environmentally focused school, was set to open the next year, coinciding with the birth of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association.
Time to seek and enjoy – not destroy – dandelions
Portland Press Herald - 4/20/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Don't let the marketers fool you. Dandelions are a superfood, not a super-weed. The pushers of chemical-weapons-in-a-spray-bottle want us to see the dandelion's bright yellow blooms and signature jagged leaves and think "seek and destroy." But what those of us hip to the culinary scene really think is "seek and enjoy."
Whatever you knead
Portland Press Herald - 4/20/2010.
By Meredith Goad – If past years are any indication, bakers and bread-heads will be turning up in droves for the fourth annual Kneading Conference and Artisan Bread Fair in Skowhegan July 29-31. The conference is an annual gathering of professional and home bakers, chefs, oven builders, millers, farmers experimenting with growing local grains, and people with an interest in sustainable agriculture and what it can do for rural economies.
