"At either end of any food chain you find a biological system -- a patch of soil, a human body -- health of one is connected, literally, to the health of the other."
- Michael Pollan

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
This Week in Lincolnville: The Fair Looms Large
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 9/4/2017.
By Diane O’Brien - The weeds, even the deep rooted ones, give up easily in the dry soil. The September sun is warm on my back as I scoot along the garden bed, pulling up the random weeds that found space among the onions. The onions themselves are safely twisted into strings of baling twine and drying in the shed. “Best onions in years,” I tell my daughter-in-law, my partner in this summer’s garden.
Love the Common Ground Country Fair’s annual poster designs? Thank the rural jurors who select them.
Down East - 9/3/2017.
“Chickens are very classic,” notes Common Ground Country Fair director April Boucher, who recently unveiled the trio of fluffy, white Columbian Wyandottes that grace the posters, T-shirts, and totes of the 41st annual festival of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association in Unity. Some 60,000 agro-lovers attend every year, and for the most devoted fans, the logo reveal is always big news; many love to collect anything and everything it’s printed on.
Paul Naron aims to grow the best indoor farmers market in the world
Portland Press Herald - 9/3/2017.
By Mary Pols - Paul Naron whips out his measuring tape. Is that vendor with the popsicles infringing on unpaid territory, creeping past his or her rented 4 feet of booth space? Trailed by his assistant, Maddie Newton, he prowls the United Farmers Market of Maine like a smallish tiger in shorts, baseball cap and a hardware store apron.
Soil Solarization in the Pacific Northwest
Western IPM Center - 9/3/2017.
Horticultural films with anti-condensation properties (developed to reduce dripping in greenhouses) were tested from California to the Pacific Northwest for their ability to kill soil-borne pathogens in nursery pots and raised beds. They worked – and didn’t kill beneficial soil microbes and did kill many weeds.
