Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Dairy task force calls for changes
Bangor Daily News - 12/10/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Augusta: Legislators knew the state’s unique Dairy Stabilization Program – which is managed, but not funded, by the state and provides subsidies to Maine dairy farmers when the price of milk plummets – was in trouble early last year when dairy prices hit crisis levels. Their worst fears were realized when the program ran out of money in September.
A new climate change index
Science Daily - 12/9/2009.
Some people still question whether Earth's climate is changing as rapidly and profoundly as the majority of climate scientists suggest. But, what if the complexity of the Earth's climate were distilled down to one number, in the same way that the Dow Jones Index condenses volumes of data into a single figure? What, then, would be the general trend?
Can delicious crepes create a buckwheat revival?
Grist - 12/9/2009.
By April McGreger – My love for buckwheat first blossomed in the Soba-ya shops of Japan. Years later, that love was rekindled on the sidewalks of Paris eating Galletes de Sarrasin, or Breton-style savory buckwheat crepes, washed down with hard apple cider in stoneware cups.
Climate Change and MOFGA
MOFGA Announcements - 12/7/2009.
What Do Climate Change, Cap & Trade, and Copenhagen Have To Do With Organic Farming? Although MOFGA doesn't have a specific program dedicated to Climate Change, earlier this year, our Board of Directors adopted a position statement on this critical issue facing all of us. With the world's attention focused on the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen and the complex and controversial cap and trade system, we thought MOFGA constituents would appreciate seeing this new video, The Story of Cap and Trade, by Annie Leonard, who brought us The Story of Stuff last year. Kate Newkirk has volunteered to represent MOFGA in state coalition discussions on climate change in Maine. She provides some perspective on this video.
