Seed Swap & Scion Exchange
Sunday, March 29, 2015
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center, Unity
FREE, no registration required

For gardeners and orchardists, it's the most wonderful flea market in the world. Not only that – most of the best stuff is free! MOFGA, the Maine Tree Crop Alliance, and Fedco will once again host the Seed Swap and Scionwood Exchange at MOFGA’s Common Ground Exhibition Hall in Unity. Please bring any seeds, scionwood or cuttings you have to share freely with others. In recent years we have given away scionwood from well over 200 fruit varieties. These contributions make the day a success. We'll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock. Admission is free. More details.

‘Maine rule’ defines tonight’s blue moon
Bangor Daily News - 12/31/2009.
By Nok-Noi Ricker – Bangor: Every once in a blue moon, there is a blue moon on New Year’s Eve. This is the year, and tonight is the night. The next blue moon that falls on New Year’s Eve won’t take place until 2028.
Ammonia-treated burgers, tainted with E. Coli
Grist - 12/31/2009.
By Tom Philpott – Few who saw the documentary Food Inc. will forget the scene involving Beef Products Inc., a South Dakota company that makes a widely used hamburger filler product. No other industrial-meat company allowed director Robert Kenner to enter the shop floor with his cameras. In sharp contrast, a Beef Products executive invited the Food Inc. crew to record his company’s inner workings. The man is clearly proud of his company’s product. “We think we can lessen the incidence of E. Coli 0157:H7,” he says.
The Soup Book
The Ecologist - 12/31/2009.
By Sophie Grigson, Jeanette Orrey, Eric Treuille – I have no hesitation in insisting that of all types of food, soup is the most universally relevant. Soup can be whatever you want it to be. It has the potential to make itself at home on any dining table or lap or rug laid out on the grass, no matter whether as part of a multi- coursed banquet for kings and queens, or the main nourishment for humble cash-strapped commoners.
