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 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.
