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.

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.

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.
