MOFGA Volunteer Sari Lindauer

March 2018 – Empowering children to take charge of their own educational experience seems to be the overarching theme of Sari Lindauer's professional life. From her work teaching science at the Breakwater School in Portland to her co-coordinating the Youth Enterprise Zone (YEZ) at the Common Ground Country Fair, Lindauer is constantly looking for ways to help kids experience the joys of being "makers."

MOFGA Centerpieces Featured at Banquet

March 1, 2018 – This year the Common Ground Country Fair crew had the honor of providing the centerpieces for the annual Maine Association of Agricultural Fairs banquet in Portland. Our goal was to have all the centerpiece components be edible, reusable, educational or recyclable. As a result, our 65 centerpieces featured organic local vegetables from farms that were in the 2017 Common Ground Country Fair Farmers’ Market or Food areas. We also included recipes and issues of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener newspaper. These were taken home and will feed and educate Fair organizers and volunteers, from all across Maine. People loved them!
