Online ticket sales for the 2014 Common Ground Country Fair are CLOSED.

Ticket prices at the gates are increasing to help support improved services and higher operation costs. You may still buy Advance Tickets at any of the OUTLETS LISTED HERE up until Fair time.

Our Store is now closed except for memberships, donations and registrations for events and workshops so that we may focus on getting our new inventory ready for the Country Store on the fairgrounds. 2014 Fair T-shirts, tote bags, aprons and more will be available online by October 1.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The food bubble
Bangor Daily News - 8/9/2011.
By Gwynne Dyer – There are all kinds of bubbles. We had the financial bubble that burst in 2008, causing economic devastation that we are still paying for. There is the Chinese real estate bubble, the biggest in history, which may take the whole world economy down with it when it bursts. But nothing compares with the food bubble.
Healthy eating is hard but not impossible for low-income Americans
Grist - 8/9/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – There's a new study out purporting to show that, as this AP story puts it, "healthy eating is a privilege of the rich." In many ways, this headline is meant to be a spear slicing deeply into the Achilles heel of the food movement. In one stroke, it seems to confirm the stereotype of the elitist, Alice Waters-loving, farmers-market-shopping locavore who demands we all drop the Doritos and start learning to love kale chips instead. It is, however, a bit of an overstatement.
Food safety program cuts mindless, shortsighted
Portland Press Herald - 8/6/2011.
Editorial – For the last month we have heard more than we needed to know about the nation's debt, and our government's inability to bring spending under control.

Compost is catching on
Bangor Daily News - 8/6/2011.
By Aislinn Sarnacki – Let’s talk garbage – how collecting and piling up decaying matter can make the world cleaner, your gardens healthier and your wallet fuller. The compost industry in Maine has grown over the past 20 years from being virtually nonexistent to about 50 compost operations in the state.
