The Young Maine Area of the Common Ground Country Fair seeks to promote farm-to-school connections, school gardens, experiential education and active healthy lifestyles for Maine's youth.

Through the Young Maine Area, the Fair provides a setting for organizations and individuals who work with Maine's youth to showcase their programs; network with each other and fairgoers; and present talks, workshops and related activities.

The goals of the Young Maine Area are:

  • to share ideas and resources that promote farm-to-school connections, school gardens, civic engagement for youth, youth mentoring, youth empowerment, sustainability, traditional arts, experiential education and healthy lifestyles for Maine's youth by engaging and connecting young Fairgoers, parents and educators with organizations and individuals whose work embodies these practices;
  • to provide a forum for presentations, workshops, and networking by these groups.
