"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Annual Common Ground fair makes coffee grounds common
Kennebec Journal - 9/28/2009.
By Amy Calder – Unity: Fresh-roasted, steaming hot coffee on a rainy day was popular fare Sunday at the Common Ground Country Fair. For the first time ever in its 33 years of existence, the fair featured the sale of certified organic coffee. "It's definitely been worth my time," said Matt Bolinder, owner of Matt's Wood Roasted Organic Coffee, based in Waterville. Bolinder gave out more than 1,000 free samples of hot, organic coffee over a three-day period, while at the same time educating patrons about where coffee is grown, how it is processed and sold, and how he roasts it.
Activism flourishes at Common Ground Fair
Bangor Daily News - 9/28/2009.
By Christopher Cousins – Unity: The Common Ground Country Fair is full of people seeking common ground with others. Among all the farmers, crafters, food vendors, artists and musicians who spent the last three days entertaining, educating and peddling to a total of more than 51,000 visitors at a sprawling field in Unity were representatives from at least 64 political or social activism organizations.
Common Ground Fair has one of best years ever
WABI-TV - 9/27/2009.
By Rob Poindexter – According to Jim Ahearn, the fair director at the Common Ground Fair, this may be the most unique event in Maine. "The Common Ground Fair is a traditional Maine fair in many respects," he says, "it's an agricultural fair, we're here to celebrate the harvest of Maine." On Sunday they brought the curtain down on the this year's Common Ground Fair in Unity. This marks the 33rd year of this fall tradition here and the early numbers say it just may be the best. "This has been an amazing weekend," Ahearne says, "it's a little on the damp side today but yesterday was our biggest day ever, almost 26,000 people, and Friday was the second biggest Friday ever."
EEE worries fail to foil Fair’s first day
Bangor Daily News - 9/26/2009.
By Walter Griffin – Unity: Cool breezes, colorful foliage and sunny skies made for a perfect opening day at the Common Ground Country Fair. Friday was children’s day, and despite some concerns about the possible presence of Eastern equine encephalitis-carrying mosquitoes being in the air, the cool temperatures and stiff breezes had apparently blown any trace of the bugs away.
