2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine’s climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Hands-on kind of student digs lot deeper than most
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/12/2011.
By Edward D. Murphy – Portland: Emma Robinson broke some ground at Casco Bay High School, literally and figuratively. Her "intensive" at the school, a week-long exploration of a subject involving the whole school, led to the creation of a community garden which should provide fresh vegetables for the school's lunches.
Rockweed harvesting concerns likely will resurface
Maine Sunday Telegram - 6/12/2011.
By Beth Quimby – So far James Young of Windham has had no complaints as a rockweed harvester in New Meadows River between Bath and Brunswick. But Young, who switched this year to rockweed after 20 years as a sea urchin diver, said he doesn't know what to expect when he heads Down East later this season.
Improving school food: do it now or pay the price later
Civil Eats - 6/11/2011.
By Kari Hamerschlag – On May 30, the Republican-controlled House Appropriations Committee voted to cripple the nation’s budding effort to do something about the woeful quality of school food and make America’s kids healthier. Ignoring the mandate to develop science-based, healthy food standards under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the committee’s bill directs the USDA to ensure that its standards will not increase costs to schools.
A people-center approach to improve access to food
Energy Bulletin - 6/10/2011.
By Matt Styslinger – According to Alexandra Spieldoch, Coordinator of the Network of Women Ministers and Leaders in Agriculture, simply producing more food will not eradicate world hunger. Spieldoch believes that the ongoing global food crisis – fueled by social unrest and climate instability – requires governments to take a comprehensive, people-centered approach to support small-scale farmers and to put access to food above overall production.
