Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Talking food with chef Melissa Kelly
Down East - 4/20/2009.
Why did you choose to come to Maine to open Primo? You know, Price and I both had family ties in Maine. It was important to us. We wanted to be on the coast, someplace on the East Coast. Maine had MOFGA, which was really appealing to me. It’s such a great organization. And there are a lot of farms in Maine. The land is rich, and what I love about Maine is that sometimes I feel like we’re living a little in the past. But it was in the past and yet today it feels like it’s what people are looking for in the future. The old style of living, people are trying to incorporate it back into their lifestyles now. I like being able to live that way.
Beekeeping business humming in Mainers’ backyards
Bangor Daily News - 4/20/2009.
By Walter Griffin – Tending honeybees is a booming business these days as more Mainers take up raising their own hives. Attendance at beekeeping schools is on the rise as raising honeybees has captivated both rural and urban communities. “Backyard beekeeping is very much alive and well in Maine,” trumpeted Jean Vose. “Every bee school in Maine has doubled their capacity in the past year. It’s refreshing and it’s heart-warming that we have so much interest in bees today.”
Everybody eats: how a community food system works
Yes! - 4/20/2009.
It begins with small farms working with natural cycles and ends with fresh food and stronger communities in nearby cities.
Waste not, want not
Common Dreams - 4/20/2009.
By Bill McKibben – Once a year or so, it's my turn to run recycling day for our tiny town. Saturday morning, 9 to 12, a steady stream of people show up to sort out their plastics (No. 1, No. 2, etc.), their corrugated cardboard (flattened, please), their glass (and their returnable glass, which goes to benefit the elementary school), their Styrofoam peanuts, their paper, their cans. It's quite satisfying – everything in its place. But it's also kind of disturbing, this waste stream.
