2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine’s climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Illustration gave misleading image about Maine farmers
Maine Sunday Telegram - 11/29/2009.
Letter to the editor by Kim Roseberry – Regarding the commentary piece, "Bellying up to Environmentalism," which appeared in the Nov. 22 Maine Sunday Telegram – The Washington Post's James McWilliam's article on the beef industry raised some valid points regarding the environmental effects of our food choices. However, the accompanying illustration produced by your staff does not accurately depict the content of the article and is a disservice to Maine dairy farmers.
How will we eat when peak oil hits? Tofu, Tree Farms and Electric Tractors
Treehugger - 11/28/2009.
by Sami Grover – As the wonderful BBC documentary A Farm for the Future has shown us all too clearly, modern agriculture is woefully dependent on fossil fuels, and oil in particular. And with International Energy Agency (IEA) whistleblowers suggesting peak oil may be nearer than we think, and even the IEA chief saying time is not on our side, we'd do well to start designing our way out of an oil-based food system. So what might that transition look like?
Where are gardeners among Earth’s leaders?
Bangor Daily News - 11/28/2009.
By Reeser Manley – It is clear that we are not all behaving as caretakers of our garden, planet Earth. In last week’s column, I described how a non-native invasive insect, the Asian longhorned beetle, has destroyed more than 25,000 trees within the Worcester, Mass., urban forest. Why was this allowed to happen? Clearly our leaders are not elected on the basis of their desire and ability to maintain the sustainability and beauty of Earth.
Healthy school lunches a Cape priority
Portland Press Herald - 11/28/2009.
Letter to the editor by Peter Esposito – Mr. Mahn's letter (Nov. 7) is absolutely right. School lunches can be healthy, and that is exactly what we are trying to do at Cape Elizabeth schools. As childhood obesity rates rise and health care concerns escalate, we took action to prove that school meals can be delicious, nutritious and still appeal to our students and staff.
