The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is excited to announce that the Common Ground Country Fair 
Poster Design Contest for the 2017 Fair is accepting submissions. The Common Ground Country Fair poster is the highly regarded image that promotes MOFGA's annual celebration of rural living.

The winning artist receives $2,500, a press release, and is highlighted in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. The selected design is also featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and in promotional literature. The theme of the design must align with MOFGA's mission and the general guidelines for participating in the Fair. We welcome all Maine residents and MOFGA members to enter submissions by August 5, 2016, only a few weeks away. The poster guidelines and application are available at www.mofga.org/TheFair/Poster. For more information please contact the Fair office at commonground@mofga.org.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Soaring food prices, wild weather, upheaval, and a planetful of trouble
Common Dreams - 7/20/2011.
By Christian Parenti – What can a humble loaf of bread tell us about the world? The answer is: far more than you might imagine. For one thing, that loaf can be “read” as if it were a core sample extracted from the heart of a grim global economy. Looked at another way, it reveals some of the crucial fault lines of world politics, including the origins of the Arab spring that has now become a summer of discontent.
Garlic scape pesto
Bangor Daily News - 7/19/2011.
By Sandy Oliver – If you plant your garlic bulbs in mid-October, in mid-July, as sure as the sun rises in the east, each plant sends up a dramatic flower shoot, called a scape, right out of the center of the plant. The scape shoot makes a spiral, and its white flower head looks for all the world like a bird’s head with a long green bill.
Eating less, better meat: yes we can
Civil Eats - 7/18/2011.
By Lisa Frack – I’m a vegetarian. But my husband’s not. And, go figure, my kids aren’t either. Which is exactly why I care about the meat I buy. Yes, I buy meat. I’d rather not, but if it’s coming into the house–and into my kids’ bodies – then I need to know exactly what I’m buying. And I not only want to know how it’s affecting my family’s health, I also care deeply about how it’s affecting our family’s environmental footprint (including climate change).
Sustainable animal feed
Soil Association UK - 7/18/2011.
Our new report, Feeding the animals that feed us, opens the urgently needed debate on how we can move away from feeding our farm animals grains and imported proteins, and promotes more sustainable alternatives such as increased grazing and use of home-grown feed.
