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.

The story of change
Yes! - 7/17/2012.
By Annie Leonard – I used to think the truth would set us free. Like many who care about the environment, I spent years thinking that information would lead to change. If only people realize the mess our planet is in, I thought, things will change. So I wrote reports, gave speeches, even testified before Congress. Some things changed. Sadly, the big picture didn’t.
Small-scale grains: another piece of the locavore puzzle
Grist - 7/16/2012.
By Rhea Kennedy – On the East Coast, Virginia’s Moutoux Orchards is growing and milling wheat and barley to nestle beside produce, dairy, eggs, and meat in its Full Diet CSA. To the west, Windborne Farm of northern California offers a grain CSA featuring not just wheat and barley, but also rare grains like teff and millet raised using a pair of draft horses.
Hopping on
Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/15/2012.
By Georgina Gustin (McClatchy Newspapers) – Richwoods, Missouri: Les Nydegger bought 55 acres of rolling Missouri woodland about 15 years ago, thinking he would use the land for hunting and fishing some day. But earlier this year, after retiring from a quarter-century-long career at Anheuser-Busch, he decided he hadn't gotten quite enough of the beer business. So he cleared an acre of forest, stuck 20-foot-tall cedar poles in the ground and planted hops.
A world without coral reefs
The New York Times - 7/15/2012.
By Roger Bradbury – It’s past time to tell the truth about the state of the world’s coral reefs, the nurseries of tropical coastal fish stocks. They have become zombie ecosystems, neither dead nor truly alive in any functional sense, and on a trajectory to collapse within a human generation.
