Ploy to save family potato farm blossoms into ploye festival
Maine Sunday Telegram - 9/18/2011.
By Deirdre Fleming – Fort Kent:The Fort Kent Ploye Festival is held each August in conjunction with the local muskie fishing derby to celebrate summer and draw tourists. But what this eight-year-old tradition really does is retell an important local story. About 20 years ago, Fort Kent had as many as 40 potato farmers. Today, there are just five, including the Bouchard Family Farm.
Wet weather has made bountiful season for mushroom foragers
Bangor Daily News - 9/18/2011.
By Alex Barber – Tropical Storm Irene and other recent rainstorms may have been a nuisance to some, but it’s made for a bountiful season for mushroom foragers. “It’s a wonderful time for mushrooms. There’s lots of them out. Good rains have prompted that,” said founder of Mushrooms for Health in Rockland, Greg Marley.
Common Ground Fair has something for everyone
Kennebec Journal - 9/17/2011.
By Erin Rhoda– Unity: The three-day Common Ground Country Fair has 650 unique vendors and 700 different performances, talks and workshops, but fair director Jim Ahearne has his favorite. It's called the Youth Enterprise Zone, and it features young Maine entrepreneurs selling items they designed and made themselves. Last year youth presented dragons made of felt, beeswax candles and origami. "It's like walking into a pet shop with all the birds and the dogs and the noise. It's really hopping in there," Ahearne said about the event, which this year is all day Friday, Sept. 23.

By Vicki Robin – A year ago, I undertook a month-long experiment in making the "idea" of eating local a daily practice: For one month, I ate only food that was produced within a 10-mile radius of my home on Whidbey Island, Washington. The diet forced me to confront my habits, preferences, and obsessions. I had to learn to cook from only what's at hand, and understand my unique place on the earth – with its land and farmers and food – as never before.
