Seed Swap and Scion Exchange

Sunday, March 25
MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center, Unity

FREE, no registration required

For gardeners and orchardists, it's the most wonderful flea market in the world. Not only that – most of the best stuff is free!

MOFGA, the Maine Tree Crop Alliance, and Fedco will once again host the Seed Swap and Scionwood Exchange at MOFGA’s Common Ground Exhibition Hall in Unity.

Please bring any seeds, scionwood or cuttings you have to share freely with others. In recent years we have given away scionwood from well over 200 fruit varieties. These contributions make the day a success. If you don't have seeds or scionwood to share, don't fret and join us anyways – maybe bring some baked goods or fertile hatching eggs instead!

We’ll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock.

Admission is free. Information and schedule of activities

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Planting the seeds of a revolution
The Boston Globe - 3/27/2009.
Op-ed by Ellen Goodman – You have to admit that this gives new meaning to the idea of a "shovel-ready project." There are now 1,100 square feet on the South Lawn of the White House being transformed into a kitchen garden. If Americans follow the first family's lead, the seed pack will become the new stimulus package.
One size doesn’t fit all for tracking farm animals
Kennebec Journal - 3/26/2009.
Editorial – An expensive federal program to put computer chips in every farm animal from here to San Diego isn't good for Maine.
Kid-Safe Products Law a prescription for Mainers' good health
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 3/26/2009.
Op-Ed by Dr. Stephanie Lash - As health professionals, the last thing we would do is prescribe a sex hormone to a pregnant patient and her developing fetus. Yet we are all exposed regularly to the chemical called bisphenol-A and a host of other hormone-disrupting toxic chemicals that are in products we use every day. Exposure can lead to expensive chronic disease and disability. As a result, we believe that getting these dangerous toxic chemicals off the shelves and out of our bodies must be a top priority.
U.S. Growers Foster Wild Bees and Bee-Friendly Gardens
Environmental News Service - 3/25/2009.
Honeybees across the country are dying by the millions due to colony collapse disorder and other environmental factors, causing many growers of fruits, nuts and vegetables to wonder how their future crops will be pollinated. A study released today shows that wild bees, which are not affected by the deadly disorder, may become a pollination alternative.
