MOFGA Bud Grafting Workshop

Join Seth Yentes for our Bud Grafting Workshop taught at North Branch Farm in Monroe, Maine, on August 9. In this workshop you will have an overview of grafting techniques, participate in a discussion of rootstock and fruit trees, and apply techniques learned about bud grafting, which can be applied to various fruit trees. Seth Yentes has been grafting for 14 years and grows thousands of fruit trees every year, including apples, pears, peaches, plums and many more. Registration on the MOFGA Store

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A seafood sustained also sells
Portland Press Herald - 7/16/2010.
By Beth Quimby – People who want to eat fish only if it's caught in an ecologically benign way should shop for fish caught by Mainers. That's the message from the Portland-based Gulf of Maine Institute as it begins an effort to create markets for under-used fish species. Seafood caught in the Gulf of Maine is among the most sustainably harvested seafood in the world, says Jan Levin, manager of the organization's sustainable seafood program.
Gladly sharing the art and science of urban farming
Portland Press Herald - 7/14/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Even a small patch of earth in a neglected industrial area can become an oasis of food production. That's one of the lessons to be learned at the new Urban Farm Fermentory located on Anderson Street in Portland's East Bayside neighborhood. Tucked in back of a single-story former warehouse and hidden from view by a jungle of Japanese knotweed, a greenhouse and a container garden grow lush and verdant with the fullness of midsummer.
If you build good habits, the kids will come along
Portland Press Herald - 7/14/2010.
By Anne Mahle – I thought we had two sorts of eaters in my family's younger sector. One tries most anything once and says she loves to eat. The other eats maybe one good meal out of six and consistently says – before she's tried something – "I don't like that." In other words, I thought we had a picky eater.
Molasses and blueberries together at last: what could be more Maine?
Bangor Daily News - 7/14/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – Quick, before they are all gone, get some blueberries. They are early this year, along with everything else. You will want some to use in this Blueberry Molasses Cake recipe that Ethel Pochocki of Brooks sent me last summer. She got it about 30 years ago from a neighbor named Virginia Gray.
