Seed Swap and Scion Exchange

Sunday, March 25
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. If you don't have seeds or scionwood to share, don't fret and join us anyways – maybe bring some baked goods or fertile hatching eggs instead!

We’ll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock.

Admission is free. Information and schedule of activities

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Meet the 2018 Russell Libby Agricultural Scholarship winners
Portland Press Herald - 3/18/2018.
By Peggy Grodinsky - Our annual Source Awards honor the achievements of Mainers in the field of sustainability. But recognizing and lending a helping hand to those who are just launching their careers in the field – in this case, literally – is a mission that is equally close to our hearts. It’s why, as part of our Source awards program, we work with the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) to name three winners each year of the Russell Libby Agricultural Scholarship, which go to a Maine high school senior, a Kennebec Valley Community College student and a participant in MOFGA’s journeyperson program, each with a sustained commitment to sustainable farming.
The Teacher: No need to bring this teacher an apple – he’s got a whole seed bank in Waldoboro
Portland Press Herald - 3/18/2018.
By Mary Pols - Sometime around 1990, Waldoboro school teacher Neil Lash was watching the PBS program “The Victory Garden” when Kent Whealy appeared on the screen. Whealy had co-founded Seed Savers Exchange, one of the largest non-governmental seed banks in the United States and as he talked about the work they done with heirloom seeds, including some that had been brought to the United States on the Mayflower, Lash was struck by an inspiration.
The Farmer: Maine Grain Alliance has ‘changed the face of bread and baking’
Portland Press Herald - 3/18/2018.
By Meredith Goad - Whether it’s sending a young entrepreneur for training on how to become a maltster, or growing a field of rare Estonian wheat on a Maine farm, for the past decade the Maine Grain Alliance has been at the forefront of rebuilding Maine’s grain economy.
This Farmer Turned Congresswoman Sees a Way out of America’s Health Crisis
Mother Jones - 3/17/2018.
By Tom Philpott - Many members of the US House of Representatives run businesses in their home districts. Few of those enterprises can offer you a half-dozen oysters and a glass of wine, or send you home with an array of locally grown vegetables.
