Adam Tomash of West Gardiner died peacefully at home on April 28th after a full and authentic life. He was one of MOFGA's first certified organic growers. Adam had a curious and wide-ranging intellect. He worked on and off for many years for Fedco Seeds, first as its seed-packing manager and subsequently as its manager of Moose Growers Supply.
