Thank You, Earth Day Volunteers

April 25, 2019

MOFGA would like to thank the 17 volunteers who braved the drizzle to come to the MOFGA's grounds to help on our Earth Day workday last Saturday. We accomplished a lot, and everyone had a good time, despite the rain. Everyone enjoyed chili, squash soup, pickled veggies, biscuits and cornbread made with all-organic ingredients, and walked away with an organic cotton MOFGA volunteer T-shirt. We especially thank members of the Golden Rulers 4-H group in Waterville who came.
