The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is excited to announce that the Common Ground Country Fair 
Poster Design Contest for the 2017 Fair is accepting submissions. The Common Ground Country Fair poster is the highly regarded image that promotes MOFGA's annual celebration of rural living.

The winning artist receives $2,500, a press release, and is highlighted in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. The selected design is also featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and in promotional literature.

Portland Press Herald - 7/24/2016.
By Mary Pols - When the 10th annual Kneading Conference kicks off in Skowhegan this week, attendees will be introduced to Tristan Noyes, the new executive director of the Maine Grain Alliance.

We called him up to find out what lettuce has to do with grain and what his plans are for the organization.
