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
Unity College project raises chickens for the needy
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/22/2012.
By Beth Staples – Unity: Three-dozen chickens pecking around Quaker Hill are generating discussion among students about sustainable ecosystems, food scarcity and animal care. And soon they'll be dinner for area people in need of food.
Let’s take Earth Day to the next level
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/22/2012.
By Joseph Hardy – I was a doctoral candidate at the University of Massachusetts in 1969 when I began to take environmental issues seriously. I and a small cadre of other like-minded students teamed up with the local chapter of the Sierra Club in Amherst to organize "teach-ins" on air and water pollution. We weren't alone.
Saving the small farm – a discussion of scale
Sun Journal - 4/22/2012.
Op-ed by Richard Marble – Lots of farmers in Maine are certified organic. The paperwork is not fun and many farmers have found that if they sell products locally, labeling products as "organic" does not always matter because people know the farmers and how they farm. But, the farther away they sell or the fewer people who know them, the more that "organic" label makes a difference.
Honoring Rachel Carson on Earth Day
Bangor Daily News - 4/21/2012.
By Lisa Pohlmann, Natural Resources Council of Maine – I got up early one morning and happened to look out my second-story bedroom window. There in an oak tree, directly across from me, was a bald eagle as tall as a skateboard. We were eye to eye, and gazed at each other for a minute or so, before he spread his wide wings and flew. It remains one of my all-time favorite wildlife sightings. And I owe it to Rachel Carson.
