Condolences to the friends and family of Paul Birdsall, who died in June at age 91. Birdsall, his late wife, Molly, and their two sons moved from Connecticut to Blue Hill in 1973, where, using horsepower, they revived a neglected farm. Paul and Molly were early MOFGA members and volunteers. They hosted more than 150 apprentices, volunteered at the Common Ground Country Fair, and Paul served on the boards of MOFGA, Maine Farmland Trust and Blue Hill Heritage Trust. Read more about Paul in Marada Cook’s 2005 volunteer profile, “Teaming Up with the Next Generations of Farmers.”
