2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

See You at the 2017 Common Ground Country Fair!

The schedule for the 2017 Common Ground Country Fair is posted at http://mofga.org/TheFair/ScheduleofEvents/tabid/106/Default.aspx. Make your plans now to enjoy some of more than 750 workshops, demonstrations, talks and other events at the September 22-24 Fair at MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center in Unity. Remember that you can buy advance tickets until September 17 and that MOFGA members get in free all three days of the Fair. Those who volunteer for a 4-hour shift also get in free and get a Fair T-shirt and a meal in our Common Kitchen.

The poster is available online through our MOFGA Store.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Our health club guarantees fitness, and membership is free
Kennebec Journal - 4/30/2010.
By Denis Theoet – A few readers (very few, probably) might remember that, in my first “Notes” column two years ago, I offered free memberships in the West Gardiner Branch of the Kennebec Valley Health Club. The satellite health club happens to be located at our farm. Perhaps naively, I expected a deluge of responses. Sadly, no one responded. Not one phone call or e-mail. Perhaps readers thought it was too good to be true.
Unlocking genetic diversity with the backyard seed vault
Ethicurean - 4/28/2010.
By Mat Rogers – The 1979 children’s book Ox-Cart Man describes a colonial family who spends all year raising a crop and an ox, building the ox’s cart, and making mittens, brooms, and candles. Then the ox-cart man sets off to market to sell the crop and the mittens, brooms, and candles, then the ox, then the cart. He returns home carrying the supplies from the market the family will need for the next year and everyone starts over again.
Fiddlehead fever
Portland Press Herald - 4/28/2010.
By Meredith Goad – All over southern Maine, long-awaited fiddleheads are starting to turn up on restaurant menus, in local markets and at roadside stands.
What are breeders selecting for?
Agricultural Biodiversity - 4/28/2010.
One of the arguments in the organic-can-feed-the-world oh-no-it-can’t ding dong is about the total yield of organic versus non-organic. Organic yields are generally lower. One reason might be that, with a few exceptions, mainstream commercial and public-good breeders do not regard organic agriculture as a market worth serving.
