Percy Schmeiser delivers a keynote address to hundreds of visitors at the Common Ground Country Fair.
Since its inception in 1971, MOFGA has actively educated both government leaders and the general public concerning the benefits of organic methods, and the numerous health and environmental risks of chemically dependent, conventional agriculture.

In addition to hosting a variety of educational events in Unity and throughout the state, staff and board members appear frequently in public fora, conferences, and in the media.

They also participate in coalitions and advisory committees, advocating aggressive reductions of toxics and pesticides. Through its renowned newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener, MOFGA is the only organization to regularly report on the proceedings of the Maine Board of Pesticides Control. The quarterly newspaper also informs both consumers and growers about a variety of important legislative and regulatory issues.

MOFGA also collaborates with many other organizations to promote ecologically sound farming and gardening, and sustainable living practices in Maine and beyond.
