College adopts "no-mow" policy

Mow no more — or, at the very least, less. The grounds crew at the Middlebury College has reduced the amount of lawn they mow by 20 acres this summer, allowing pockets of the landscape to return to flower-filled meadows. Previously, the school has mowed roughly 75 acres of lawn on the main campus each summer — which took seven employees moving for three full days to complete one mowing cycle.

Table Talk: It's lunchtime at 51 Main

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

The late afternoon sun is hot, but inside the brick walls of 51 Main a group of people sits on the leather couches in the corner, talking and laughing in the cool air. When I walk in, sweaty from the heat and feeling as though I’ve just run 10 miles, I look around and feel a little out of place. I should be relaxing, cool drink in hand.

Table Talk: On craft beers and brew festivals

Posted on July 22, 2009 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

Last week my friends in Burlington invited me to the Vermont Brewers Festival.

I’ve learned to trust him in all matters that concern beer, so I closed my eyes and clicked “submit payment” on the online ticketing site.

In the basement of his New Jersey home was a laboratory stacked with shelves holding glass jars of chemicals and solutions and a sink for developing photographs. Here, Tony worked on a long-life lithium battery that would run one of the first electric cars and cause a minor explosion that could be heard by his family upstairs at the dinner table.
