MOFGA's Farm Training Project Workshops
Weekly, June through September
at farm locations throughout Maine
Free


Designed to augment the on-farm learning of the farm apprenticeship program, MOFGA's Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops follow an informal format, usually beginning with a farm tour followed by a presentation on the topic of the day. Participants are invited to stay for a potluck supper – bring a dish or something fresh from the farm to share (please bring your own place setting as well). All events are held rain or shine and are free and open to the public. For more information or directions to any of the workshops, call 568-6018, email education@mofga.org, or check the FTP website.

Growing hops in Maine? Volunteers hand-pick crop in Aroostook County
Bangor Daily News - 8/31/2013.
By Julia Bayly - The next time you sip a beer from Maine-based Allagash Brewing Company and Gritty McDuff’s, or New Hampshire’s Throwback Brewery, take a moment and toast the helping hands harvesting the hops that made varieties of those brews possible.

Portland Press Herald - 8/31/2013.
By Dave Gram, The Associated Press - Weather conditions have been favorable to apple production this year, with minimal late frosts, a wet early summer and recent dry conditions. The weather contrasts with conditions a year ago when a warm late April coaxed out the apple blossoms but was followed by a killing frost in many areas.

Kennebec Journal - 8/31/2013.
By Rachel Ohm - For the last six years, Kyle Costigan has worked summers at Sweet Land Farm, where he cares for crops and helps harvest hay. He's a senior at Unity College, and he probably will leave the farm to start his career, he said. That will mean the farmer he works for will have to find new help, a task that is familiar but still not easy.
NY judge in Frito-Lay lawsuit refuses to refer GMO/natural issue to FDA: ‘Agency would need far more than six months to define ’natural’
Food Navigator USA - 8/30/2013.
By Elaine Watson - In the 2nd major development this week in the debate over whether foods made with GMOs can be labeled ‘natural’, a NY judge handling a multi-district lawsuit vs Frito-Lay says she will not refer the matter to the FDA, as her counterparts have done in similar cases vs Gruma Corp and General Mills.
