MOFGA Bud Grafting Workshop

Join Seth Yentes for our Bud Grafting Workshop taught at North Branch Farm in Monroe, Maine, on August 9. In this workshop you will have an overview of grafting techniques, participate in a discussion of rootstock and fruit trees, and apply techniques learned about bud grafting, which can be applied to various fruit trees. Seth Yentes has been grafting for 14 years and grows thousands of fruit trees every year, including apples, pears, peaches, plums and many more. Registration on the MOFGA Store

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Obamas to Plant Vegetable Garden at White House
The New York Times - 3/19/2009.
Michelle Obama will begin digging up a patch of the South Lawn on Friday to plant a vegetable garden, the first at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden in World War II. There will be no beets — the president does not like them — but arugula will make the cut. While the organic garden will provide food for the first family’s meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at a time when obesity and diabetes have become a national concern.

But the article left me thinking that there was something missing.
Economy of scales
Boston Globe - 3/18/2009.
By Devra First – Rockland, Maine: On the first Saturday afternoon in March, warmer than any other afternoon in recent memory, Elizabeth Cuccinello pulls up to the Good Tern co-op. In the bed of her truck is a big turquoise cooler. Soon people begin to arrive, greeting Cuccinello with hugs and small talk. She opens the cooler and pulls out bag after bag of freshly caught Maine shrimp.
