Our annual meeting takes place on day one of the Maine Agricultural Trades Show at the Augusta Civic Center – January 12 in 2016 – at 1:30 p.m. in the Piscataquis/Sagadahoc Room.
Members hear reports from board members, staff, and committee chairs; vote on a slate of Board Members for the year; vote on the following proposed revision of MOFGA's mission statement:
The purpose of the Association is to help farmers and gardeners
: grow organic food, fiber and other crops; to protect the environment; recycle natural resources; to increase local food production; to support rural communities; and to illuminate for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound farming practices.
Aside from the Commissioner's Luncheon, MOFGA's Annual Meeting is the best-attended gathering at the Trades Show. We hope you can join us on January 12!
