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.

Extend your garden with potted annuals and vegetables
Bangor Daily News - 5/16/2012.
By Reeser Manley – Space is at a premium in Marjorie’s garden, particularly for sun-loving annuals and vegetables. Over the years many of the vegetable garden’s beds have been turned over to cultivation of raspberries, strawberries, grapes and highbush blueberries. Small fruits are Marjorie’s passion. When all of the sunny beds are filled with plants or plans, we plant to containers.
