Grow Your Own Organic Garden Classes
April 8, 2015
6 to 9 p.m.
At adult education programs across the state!
Registration fees: $5 to cover handouts



Are you concerned about the rising cost of food? Unsure what the term "certified organic" means? Interested in learning how to grow your own vegetables in a sustainable manner?

Join us for an evening-long workshop on how to grow your own garden. We’ll talk about the basics of soil science, how to enrich your soil to produce healthy, high-yielding plants. Presenters are seasoned MOFGA farmers and gardeners.

Each year MOFGA sponsors this statewide educational event at over 30 different locations in Maine. The workshops are open to the public and to people of all gardening skill and experience levels.

Class locations and more information.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Don’t like today’s food monopolies? Blame Robert Bork
Grist - 12/21/2012.

Grist - 12/21/2012.
By Susie Cagle – Over the last several weeks of fiscal-cliff frenzy, we’ve heard a lot about taxes, taxes, taxes. It’s apocalypse now-ish!

Investigative Reporting Workshop - 12/21/2012.

America’s Children and the Environment, Third Edition, is a sobering analysis of the way in which pollutants build up in children’s developing bodies and the damage they can inflict.
MRSA found in our milk: Superbug strain can cause serious infections in humans and is resistant to antibiotics
Daily Mail [UK] - 12/21/2012.
By Sean Poulter – Scientists tested 1,500 samples of bulk milk and found seven cases of MRSA ST398 (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) from five farms in England, Scotland and Wales. The Soil Association wants the UK government to crack down on antibiotic use on UK farms.
