The 2015 Fair Posters are Here!

This year's Fair poster is available for $10 (plus $4 postage). Order online or call the MOFGA office at 207-568-4142.

The 2015 Fair poster portrays a goat chewing on a green manure crop with a native pollinator in the background. The artist, Arika von Edler, has been working on organic farms in Maine for 10 years and is currently in San Francisco working on her master’s degree. Her art highlights land stewardship through cover cropping, rotational grazing of livestock and supporting native pollinators. These topics and more will be featured at this year’s Fair on September 25, 26 and 27.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
We need to face daunting facts about energy
Kennebec Journal - 12/29/2010.

The Food and Drug Administration says you shoudn't eat sprouts from Tiny Greens Organic Farm of Urbana, Ill. Stay way from the company's organically grown alfalfa sprouts and its line of Spicy Sprouts, a mix that includes radish and clover sprouts.
What Is in Fast Food? A Newly Discovered Reason to Avoid Fast Food
Huffington Post - 12/29/2010.
