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
USDA looks to approve Monsanto’s drought-tolerant corn
The New York Times - 5/11/2011.
By Paul Voosen – The Obama administration will seek to allow the unlimited sale of a corn variety genetically engineered by Monsanto Co. to resist drought, the Department of Agriculture announced today. The corn, if approved, would be the first commercial biotech crop designed to resist stressful environmental conditions like drought, rather than pests or herbicides.
Trescott herbalist creates organic fertilizer tea
Bangor Daily News - 5/11/2011.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Trescott Township: Nearly 20 years ago, Heidi Herzberger was not feeling well so she brewed a cup of herbal tea to make herself feel better. “I couldn’t help but think,” she said, “that if this tea was going to make me feel better, wouldn’t it make sense that a special restorative tea could make plants better? I decided to create that tea.”
Let rhubarb be more than ‘pie plant’
Portland Press Herald - 5/11/2011.
By Brooke Dojny – Rhubarb is one of a small, select group of ingredients – also including asparagus, fiddleheads and dandelion greens – emblematic of spring in Maine. When we finally begin seeing gardens burgeoning with clumps of elephant ear-shaped rhubarb leaves, it's time for rejoicing.
Maine has a mushrooming problem at the State House
Kennebec Journal - 5/10/2011.
By George Smith – Foragers are fretting about fungi rules and the controversy has mushroomed into a major piece of legislation. So much solution for so little problem. The story starts three years ago in Portland, where two chefs purchased the wrong mushrooms, cooked them up, and poisoned themselves. They recovered and that should have been the end of the story.
