Recognition for Hayward and Gerritsen

Two members of the Maine food community have received recognition for their work:

  • Sam Hayward, chef and co-owner of Fore Street is the recipient of Sustainer award from the Chef’s Collaborative for “his commitment to promoting local, sustainable foods in the culinary world.”
  • The Utne Reader has named Maine organic farmer Jim Gerritsen to their 2011 list of Visionaries for his efforts to “spearhead a lawsuit against corporate agriculture giant Monsanto, filed last spring on behalf of 270,000 family farmers, gardeners, and consumers who are suing to keep some food crops free of genetic modification.”
