Seed Swap & Scion Exchange
Sunday, March 29, 2015
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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. We'll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock. Admission is free. More details.

New management promises changes at DeCoster
Portland Press Herald - 12/13/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Maine's problem-plagued egg production farm is under new management. Last month, Moark, a subsidiary of the privately owned Land O'Lakes, entered into a 10-year lease agreement to run the former DeCoster Egg Farms. At the end of the term, Moark will have an option to buy the company.
Is that flame retardant in your soft drink?
Treehugger - 12/13/2011.
By Rachel Cernansky – Brominated vegetable oil is patented as a flame retardant and it's banned in food all over Europe and Japan, but it's on the ingredient list of about 10 percent of sodas in the U.S. It's not in Coca-Cola, but is in Mountain Dew, Fanta Orange, and in some flavors of Powerade and Gatorade.
Oil, climate, agriculture and learning to love limits
ASPO-USA - 12/12/2011.
By Sharon Astyk – I imagine that at some point, most of us have played some sport or another. At some point we have accepted the notion that our play can be more fun, more competitive, more just, more joyous, in some ways more free, if we accept a host of rules and limits to what we can do.
Land trusts remind us of state’s vitality
Maine Sunday Telegram - 12/11/2011.
By Tim Glidden, Alan Hutchinson and John Piotti – Maine has something to be quite proud of this holiday season: a recently released survey of land conservation and land trusts has reported Maine to be a national leader. Since 2005, Maine land trusts have helped ensure the future of nearly 1.8 million acres of active farmlands, productive forests, working waterfronts and open space important to local communities and wildlife.
